The department was set up in early 2016 by Cbo as an attempt to justify the lack of productive work being achieved by his team in order to keep funding.

It is founded from the failures of the defunct Deparment of Mind Your Own Business and is based in the outpost on Yougopotamia but has offices in sector 1391 where the portal to Yougopotamia can be found.


The department is focussed on researching the best ways of avoiding work until the last moment, due to the nature of this research a paradox has formed, in order to research procrastination you must procrastinate but the act of procrastination means that no research is happening
