I am advised that my Department and those agencies under its remit are engaged in a number of contracts for the provision of security services as listed in the following tables. When engaging security services my Department is committed to public procurement procedures and value for money. A number of contracts such as those awarded for keyholding duties are subject to annual review, and a number have been renewed. The value of these contracts is considerably below the threshold necessary for the conduct of a formal procurement process.
