Departments: Consultants

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if he will list the outside (a) agencies and (b) consultancies which are undertaking work commissioned by his Department; and what the (i) purpose and (ii) cost is of each commission. (138455)

A copy of the document entitled “Current Contracts as at May 2007”, which gives details of the agencies and consultants and the current values of contracts issued by the Department for International Development (DFID), has been placed in the Libraries of the House. Details of contracts awarded are published on the DFID website. The contract titles on the report reflect the type of activity carried out. The report does not include low value contracts issued by DFID’s overseas offices, of which there are no consolidated central records. To produce a list of these contracts would incur disproportionate cost.
