The Department is currently in transition following the announcement of its formation in July last year and the bringing together of the functions of the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) along with the business, industrial strategy and innovation functions of the former Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

BEIS constituent departments published details of procurement spend within their Annual Reports (this included spend attributed to higher and further education policy, apprenticeships and skills which have transferred to Department for Education and trade policy and export control, as well as the functions previously performed by UK Trade and Investment which have transferred to the new Department for International Trade).
