Data relating to contracts awarded by Central Procurement Directorate (CPD) on behalf of central government departments and arm's length bodies in Northern Ireland.
The data currently lists contracts awarded by CPD from 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2018. Contract information includes the reference number, title, the estimated contract value, date of the award, the name and address of the contractor, and if the contract was awarded directly without a public competition (in which case the basis for that decision is listed) .
For certain types of contract it is difficult to predict the estimated contract value, so this has been recorded as 1*.
Details of suppliers awarded contracts with the Department of Justice has been withheld, to protect the health and safety of these individuals.
