We do not centrally record items of revenue and expenditure which are uprated using indexes and other measures of inflation; we are not therefore able to provide a comprehensive list. We have, however, identified the following items:

Expenditure
Consumer prices index Contract: China—AIDS Roadmap Technical Support project
Retail prices index 1. DFID's overseas pensions
2. The following contracts:
(a) ARIES (Activities Reporting Information E-System)—implementation partner/software supplier
(b) Quest EDRM (Electronic Document and Records Management System)
(c) East Kilbride headquarters building maintenance, which includes the retail prices index inflator, in conjunction with BMI (building maintenance information) cost indices
Other measures of inflation
