- have not been fully performed in the 12 months prior to 31 December 2021; or
- have been entered into during the 12 months prior to 31 December 2021.
Most of the contracts listed in the table for the Reporting Period contain confidentiality provisions of a general nature that are designed to protect the confidential information of the parties that may be obtained or generated in carrying out the contract. The reasons for including such clauses include:
