The Department was created on 28 June 2007. The Department has used three agencies for the provision of its temporary staff (admin and clerical)-Adecco, Reed Employment and Hays Office Support. The contract with Adecco expired on 31 August 2007, when new contracts were established with Reed and Hays.

Total spend with the agencies:

2007/08-£1.7 million

2008/09-£3.3 million

April 2009 to December 2010-£2.0 million

For a small number of specialist temporary staff and interim managers the Department has used other agencies but information on this could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
