Volume 455: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the 20 largest procurement projects initiated by his Department since May 1997 have been; what the (a) original budget, (b) cost to date and (c) consultancy fees have been; and what the final cost was of each project which has been completed. (106574)

From the best currently available information, details of the 20 largest procurement projects initiated by the Department inclusive of its Executive Agencies since May 1997 are in the following table.

The procurement projects, which were initiated through the placement of a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), are listed by (a) original budget, or where unavailable by contract value, and where available (b) cost to date, (c) consultancy fees, and, where completed, the final cost of each project.

Some information is either irretrievable to the format requested, or is held in a discontinued accounting system. To supply this data would incur disproportionate cost.
