The Valuation Office Agency undertakes various types of valuation and surveying work on behalf of a number of public sector clients for a wide range of purposes and requires the appropriate professional equipment to perform these roles effectively.

The Agency purchases its surveying equipment from a designated supplier. The total annual spend in the last two financial years is as follows:

2006-07: £16,065

2007-08: £209,171

The nature of the equipment and the time it was purchased lead to annual variations in expenditure.

It is not possible to break these figures down into individual category purchases, except at disproportionate cost.
