Large civil engineering companies devote 1.3% of their turnover on IT & telecom expenditure. This is half the UK norm. Smaller sized civil engineering concerns also commit less than the UK average although the differences are much smaller.
Research & development companies have an expenditure of over £500 per employee on system software. This is more than four times that of the national average. The vast gulf in spend levels applies to all sizes of organisation.
Custom software spend per employee by auxiliary financial & insurance companies increases with size of organisation. The smallest concerns outlay over £200 whilst for the largest it is almost £700. On average the expenditure is a factor of four greater than the UK norm.
Overall membership organisations have an outlay of £1,000 per employee on computer services. This is much the same as the UK norm. By size of organisation the spend is far smaller for large enterprises in the case of membership firms.
