|(1) Set up and transition costs have been excluded from the above figures. |
(2) Overall cost of all ICT services due to issues of commercial confidentiality.
The original estimate excludes indexation.

Support for new systems has been added (subject to change control) which has added to this baseline. Indexation has also been added each year. This explains the difference between the original estimate and the outturn.
