Relevant information is contained in the following table.
|National programme for IT by key elements: Projected lifetime costs and expenditure to 31 March 2009|
|Core c ontracts||Projected lifetime costs( 1)||E xpenditure to 31 March 2009( 1)|
|North West and West Midlands||1,042||271|
|Choose and Book||144||133|
|Amount retained by Accenture(2)||110||-52|
| Notes: |
1. Figures in the two columns are not directly comparable. The projected lifetime costs are shown at 2004-05 prices, and final outturn will be higher due to inflation in subsequent years. Those for expenditure to 31 March 2009 are resource outturn figures.
2. In 2006, Accenture made arrangements to voluntarily novate the company's contract to another existing supplier under the programme. Of the £179 million Accenture had received to that point the company retained £110 million for work completed. £52 million represents the value, for accounting purposes, of moneys repaid as at 31 March 2009.
