Design costs for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) main website were wrapped up with other technical and functionality costs and so it is not possible to calculate the exact cost of external website design consultants without incurring disproportionate cost. The FCO also contributes towards websites for specific campaigns and projects aimed at delivering consular and foreign policy objectives. The costs of external websites design consultants for all websites hosted or supported by the FCO are not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
