As these projects were procured under the Non Profit Distributing model, there are no profits distributed to the private sector investors in the project companies that have been set up and which hold the contracts with the procuring authorities.
Information on interest and fees is included in the financial models which underpin the contracts This information, which was subject to competition during the procurement process, is subject to confidentiality provisions in the contracts for a time limited period of typically two years. Information on the profit levels of sub-contracting companies, such as the construction contractor, is not held.
