The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) is an independent registered charity which receives income from a variety of sources. My Department is not responsible for monitoring income derived from sources other than the Department. The grant committed by the Department to SSAT in 2009-10 is £15,419,982. SSAT is also free to bid for contracts advertised by the Department, and £20,692,700 is due to be paid in 2009-10 under contracts won by SSAT in open competition. We are not in a position to estimate SSAT's income from these sources in 2010-11 as grants are negotiated annually and SSAT may bid on the same basis as other organisations for any contract advertised by the Department on the open market.

SSAT's audited accounts are published and available from the Charity Commission and Companies House.
