The Foreign and Commonwealth Office currently has 40 contracts globally with G4S companies, totalling approximately £32 million per annum. The largest two are for Afghan Security Services (£23 million) and UK Guarding (£4 million). Details of the remainder of the contracts which provide physical security to posts overseas are not kept centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
