South East England Regional Development Agency (SEEDA) has several company accounts for cars and taxis. The cost for car and taxi services invoiced to them was £62,006 in 2005-06 and £79,026 in 2006-07. The contracts for the larger company accounts are tendered.

In addition, SEEDA staff have claimed for other taxi costs on individual expense claim forms, but accounting information on this is held combined with other travel and accommodation expenses and cannot be supplied due to disproportionate costs of manual disaggregation.
