The cost of producing the Department's 2002 annual report was as follows:

Design, typesetting, pdfs, etc. 56,105
Print (buy back of copies from The Stationery Office) 24,774
Proofreading 570
Total 81,449

Design costs included the development of a new template which the Department plans to follow for the next two to three years.

1,400 copies of the final report were purchased at a discounted rate from The Stationery Office (TSO) for distribution to staff, the media and to key players within the Department's non-departmental public bodies and agencies.
