The United Kingdom Government is committed to transparency across its operations to enable the public to hold public bodies and politicians to account, including commitments relating to public procurement. Central Government buyers publish all contract information on Contracts Finder where the value of the contract is over £10,000. This will include contracts in relation to COVID-19 vaccines. The Contracts Finder is available at the following link:

There are measures in places to identify, assess and protect information that is sensitive and should therefore be redacted (removed and not published). We will use the exemptions set out by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as the criteria for assessing what information should be redacted.
