The Government has established a multitude of partnerships with industry, academia, local government and others to deliver its testing programme and many of the contracts span multiple disciplines, making a total cost for providing testing services difficult to articulate. Many are subject to confidential commercial agreements that would preclude the Department from disclosing them publicly

All the Department’s contracts are, or will be, published on GOV.UK’s Contract Finder service.
