Who pays who now?
Detica bearing any unforeseen costs?
Isn't Detica owned by BAE? I am confused as to how the finances work with this one...

Well you might start by knowing that the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is a *separate* ministry from the Ministry of Defense (MoD).
Detica are quite good in my experience.
And secondly the contract is with the company called "BAE Systems Detica". Not with "BAE Systems", who then subcontract it to their wholly owned subsiduary "BAE Systems Detica".
Also, in layman's terms, the MoJ is in charge of your local court, and the MoD does the military. Pretty different.
