To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much funding his Department has allocated to pay Ramco UK Ltd. in the 2022-23 financial year to run online auctions of surplus equipment and supplies purchased by his Department in response to the outbreak of covid-19; and how much his Department has recovered from the proceeds of those auctions in the 2022-23 financial year.

The Department has a contract with Ramco UK to conduct online auctions to sell surplus equipment and supplies procured during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have not allocated any funding to pay Ramco UK as the company is paid a commission from successful sales.

The Department anticipates a total net revenue of over £400,000 through the e-auction pilot between April and September 2022. The pilot is due to conclude in December 2022.
