Departmental Contracts

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 26 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the (a) objective and (b) value was of each contract placed with (i) Deloitte and Touche, (ii) Ernst and Young, (iii) KPMG, (iv) PricewaterhouseCoopers and (v) PA Consulting by his Department and its agencies in each year since 2004-05. (179036)

Historical figures are not available for the Department for Children, Schools and Families and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

The Department does not hold a central record for the Department and its agencies, and cannot provide detailed information on the nature of all contracts, consultancies and other services placed with the stated companies. To do so would exceed the disproportionate cost threshold.
