The period 199798 included #501,049 on e-government IT consultants commissioned by the Central IT Unit (CITU). Expenditure on this topic was #3,138,437 in 199899, #5,046,618 in 19992000 and #3,543,147 in 200001. Expenditure in 199899 and 19992000 increased to include Y2K work and in 200001 a decrease in expenditure in those areas was offset by work on UK Online following an expansion of e-Government work in the 2000 Spending Review. Other Cabinet Office consultancy spend is on research and IT developments.
