Costs incurred by the DCA up to 9 May 2007 in relation to the setting up of the Ministry of Justice are estimated at £1.5 million. These costs mainly relate to IT and estate changes to ensure the new Ministry can operate effectively.

Additional costs arising from the integration of the various activities that constitute the new Ministry will be incurred after 9 May. These costs have yet to be fully assessed.
