British personnel are currently supporting the UN peace-keeping operations in Cyprus (UNFICYP), Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO), South Sudan (UNMISS) and the EU mission in Bosnia Herzegovina (EUFOR ALTHEA).
MOD costs, based on capitation rates for financial year (FY) 2014-15, are estimated to be in the region of £310,000 per annum for UK personnel deployed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and £45,000 per annum for personnel in South Sudan. There is an additional cost to the MOD budget for personnel allowances; however, these vary depending on entitlements, are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
The cost to the MOD of supporting the Bosnia Herzegovina mission in FY 2012-13 was around £800,000. This includes manpower costs, real life support costs, pre-deployment training and the operational rehearsal for those personnel involved. Again, these costs do not include personnel allowances which are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate costs.
