star this property answer text <p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has a core budget to investigate and, where appropriate, prosecute the most serious and complex cases of fraud, bribery and corruption, and some exceptionally large cases will arise that require additional resources.</p><p>Where this is the case, the additional funding which is commonly referred to as ‘blockbuster funding’ is allocated as part of the Main and Supplementary Estimates processes. Therefore, the additional funding has been approved as part of this process each year.</p><p>The table below shows the SFO’s total net Departmental Expenditure Limit for each year since 2010-11, and the amount of this which was blockbuster funding in each year.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>2015-16</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total budget</p></td><td><p>£36.9m</p></td><td><p>£33.2m</p></td><td><p>£40.8m</p></td><td><p>£53.6m</p></td><td><p>£57.7m</p></td><td><p>£43.8m*</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>‘Blockbuster’ funding</p></td><td><p>£2.8m</p></td><td><p>£0</p></td><td><p>£6.7m</p></td><td><p>£24m</p></td><td><p>£25.2m</p></td><td><p>£10m to date</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>* This is the figure from the Main Estimate for 2015-16 and so may be revised as part of the Supplementary Estimates process.</p><p>The figures in the table do not include capital expenditure or Annually Managed Expenditure, or any income from costs awards or other recoveries. The blockbuster funding during this period also includes support for civil litigation costs relating to the investigation into Kaupthing.</p><p>As has been explained in response to previous questions from Members, it is not appropriate to provide a breakdown of the funding allocated to each SFO investigation.</p>
