The Ministry of Justice has direct contracts with Serco and in the case of the Private Finance Prisons(PFIs) that Serco are the custodial service provider, the Ministry of Justice has a contractual relationship with the relevant Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV).

In our contracts directly with Serco the Ministry of Justice pays Serco directly and in the case of PFI prisons, the Ministry of Justice pays the relevant SPV who will then pay Serco as the operating subcontractor. A break-down of spend is as follows:
