An initial estimate of the numbers of consultants, contractors and agency staff working in central Government departments, their agencies and NDPBs. This is the result of a Cabinet Office scoping exercise capturing key workforce management information.
Workforce numbers provided are Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) count, direct headcount, and are as at 31 March 2010. Paybill cost information is also provided and covers the financial year 2009-10. Information is supplied for each organisation separately, and are broken down by payroll (permanent and temporary) and non-payroll staff (agency staff, Interim managers, specialist contractors, and consultants).
These figures are management information; they are not offical statistics.
