During the compilation of the Public Service and Tendering Report 2017, an error was discovered with the 2016 analysed spend dataset. The underlying issue has been addressed resulting in a downward adjustment of €182m to the 2016 total analysed spend data.

The original Public Service and Tendering Report 2016 has been withdrawn and this second edition has been released with an updated spend analysis. The 2016 analysed tendering data is unaffected.

The Office of Government Procurement apologises for this error.
