This includes the cost of the contract for the initial data collection exercise which was awarded to Siemens-Nixdorf Information Systems Limited who subcontracted to Phoenix Interface Technology Ltd. The value of the contract was £16,423 plus value added tax. The initial non-recurring set-up costs have yet to be finalised.
