We define supplier resource costs as the total cost of the suppliers engaged to deliver outcomes and deliverables in support of the Immigration Platform Technology programme (IPT). Supplier resource costs in totality comprise the price of each individual supplier contract awarded.

The contract price, essentially the ‘cost’ to us as the customer, will be made up of a number of different components including (but not limited to) manpower costs, general and administrative costs, physical infrastructure, IT infrastructure, taxation and profit. As our suppliers are contracted through competitive government frameworks on a ‘per outcome’, ‘per unit’ or ‘per day’ basis, we have no visibility of the categorised breakdown of such components. However we have broken down the costs to show the capital (CDEL) and resource (RDEL) expenditure splits across the 4 IPT workstreams as below:
