DFID does not hold this information centrally for all internal departments and overseas offices and could only be collated at disproportionate cost. We can however provide information on cloud services contracts which are managed by our IT department. Of the cloud services contracts managed by our IT Department, there are zero which were delivered by British cloud services providers which are now delivered by multinational cloud service providers.
