Expenditure attributable to the Department’s internal administration cost centre (19860 – Procurement) is shown in the following table. These figures are taken from our Business Management System (Budget Control Reports) that are audited by the National Audit Office each year as part of the assurance process. They include all administrative costs (staff costs and wider administrative charges) associated with running a central procurement management function on behalf of the Department. Since 2010 the structure of the team has changed periodically but the figures account for all headcount within both procurement and contract management.
