Dear Office for National Statistics,

please could you share a copy of the contract(s) with IQVIA for their work on your 2020 covid infection survey.

I understand some commerciallly sensitive elements may be need to be redacted to make the release possible. I am looking for details on performance goals and other details of the contract, which I believe are of public interest given some of the reported operational issues IQVIA has experienced:
