The Prime Minister's Office and Deputy Prime Minister’s are integral parts of the Cabinet Office.

Corona Energy and Shell supply gas while EDF Energy, British Gas and Npower supply electricity to the Department.

The central London Cabinet Office estate and Rosebery Court have retained the same gas and electricity suppliers for the last 10 years while the Central Office of Information switched suppliers in 2005 and the Emergency Planning College, York, in 2011.

The amount spent on gas and electricity over the last 10 years can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
