This bulletin is part of a regular published series of statistical reports, containing analysis of key QDC/QSC information. Analysis of all contracts that became a QDC/QSC between 1 April 2015 and 30 June 2022 is included.

The SSRO was notified of 488 contracts that became QDCs/QSCs by 30 June 2022. Contractors have one month after the date the contract becomes a QDC/QSC to submit reports, and as of 31 July 2022 the SSRO had received contract reports for 462 contracts that became QDCs/QSCs between 1 April 2015 and 31 July 2022. This analysis is based on these 462 contracts, which comprised 396 QDCs and 66 QSCs.

In the first three months of 2022/23, the SSRO has received contract reports for 14 new QDCs/QSCs, with an estimated total contract price of 1.5 billion. The estimated total contract price of all 462 QDCs/QSCs was 69.8 billion. The average reported estimated contract profit rate across all QDCs/QSCs was 9.38 per cent.

The analysis reflects the most recently reported contract data. All data is taken from reports submitted by the contractor for each QDC/QSC as indicated in the bulletin. The data may not reflect values at contract completion.
