To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the value was of each contract awarded to Rackspace by (a) his Department (b) its agencies in each of the last nine years. (197508)

My Department uses the services of Rackspace via a framework agreement with its main IT suppliers, Atos Origin. My Department does not have a direct contract with Rackspace.

Charges made by Atos Origin for the Rackspace service are from January 2005 to date and amount to £52,782.

The Royal Parks Agency has never awarded a contract to Rackspace.
