Correction to Commons Written Answer
House of Lords
Lord McNally (Minister of State, Justice; Liberal Democrat)
I regret to inform the House that I have recently discovered that there was an inaccuracy in the Answer I gave to a Commons Parliamentary Question (85074) on
I am now advised that the correct answer is that at the time of the question in December 2011, the Ministry of Justice had engaged nine senior managers working in Senior Civil Service positions on an interim basis (deployed within the MoJ IT Directorate). Within its executive agencies and non-departmental bodies, there were two senior managers engaged in a Senior Civil Service position on an interim basis (one in the National Offender Management Service and the other in the Legal Service Commission).
Furthermore the Answer described the process for the procurement of contractors and interims through a single managed service provider, Capita Resourcing Limited. This was normally the case for the main department and its executive agencies. However, it should have been made clear that the Ministry's non-departmental public bodies have their own processes and are not obliged to use the Ministry's single managed service provider. In addition, where the single managed service provider was unable to source specifically skills individuals, then other providers are engaged.
