The final staffing structure will be completed only when all discussions on post transfers are finalised. The current estimate of full-time equivalents translated to BIS grades is:

Number
SCS 4
Grade 6/7 18.5
SEO/HEO/EO/AO 18.25

The above remains an estimate pending final agreement. Back office support for HR, finance and grants will be contracted from one or more of the existing partners.

The estimated administration costs, including staff costs for 2010/11 will be £3.2 million plus the back office function costs, which are funded by existing partners and the necessary transfers are still in negotiation.

There will be no increase in BNSC costs.
