In April 2006, Transport Direct became an operational business unit of the Department for Transport, with the budgets revised to reflect the maturity of the Transport Direct Portal and the reduced need for capital investment. The Transport Direct Portal Service encompasses the Transport Direct Portal Design, Build and Operate (DBO) contract, which covers both development and operation, and the data and services provided by other third parties that underpin the Transport Direct Portal. The estimated and outturn costs for the Transport Direct Portal Service for FY 2006-07 were:

Period FY 2006-07 £ million
Estimate 6.1
Outturn 5.9

These figures represent the total sums paid to the Atos Origin Consortium (the DBO contractor) for all aspects of the DBO contract and to other third-party providers of data and services to the Transport Direct Portal.
