To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many outsourced IT contracts have been signed by his Department in each year since 1997; how much each of these contracts is worth; with whom they are signed; how many have been renegotiated; how many are still in place; and if he will make a statement. [126191]

This information could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Furthermore, the value of an individual contract with a supplier is agreed in confidence and could be disclosed only with the prior agreement of all contractors involved. Figures are, however, available for the total number of contracts placed by the Defence Communications Services Agency since 2001 and the cumulative values of those contracts as well as the number of contract amendments (including extensions, additions to services provided etc.) to existing contracts made in the same period. The values are shown in the table:

New contracts placed (number)2,0791,075
Value (£ million)27.8250.61
Contract amendments (number)29183
Value (£ million)47.3119.37
