These figures include contracts awarded directly to the RAND Corporation, RAND Europe and RAND Europe Cambridge Limited. Contract values have been rounded to the nearest £10,000. The figures do not cover contracts which are awarded to suppliers on behalf of other Government Departments; by the MOD’s Trading Funds and Non-Departmental Public Bodies (which lie outside the MOD’s accounting boundary); locally by the Department under low-value procedures; or in relation to those collaborative projects where the payments are made through international procurement agencies or overseas governments.
