We have interpreted the question in relation to the cost of individuals with contract management responsibility in the Department.

This information is not held centrally and contract management is only part of the job of the individuals concerned and in general is not a specific role. We therefore cannot provide a cost as the amount of time required to manage each contract would vary according to the complexity of the contract and the grades of the individuals involved.
