My Department has not incurred any expenditure on external IT consultants since March 2011. The Information Systems Services Division of my Department does, however, have contracts with 6 IT companies for the provision of ICT personnel, who are classed as contractors rather than consultants. All contracts entered into follow Public Procurement guidelines and, when completed, are re-advertised on eTenders or the EU Journal as appropriate.
