The £1.8 million figure relates to costs associated with the contract for the development and build for the catch recording project. Publication of a detailed breakdown would not be appropriate due to commercial sensitivities. Further costs totalling £590,000 have also been incurred to date in connection with development of the application that fall outside of the main developer costs including staff resource, establishment of call centre and other management costs.
