This information is not held centrally. Prime contractors are obliged to notify my Department of any sub-contractors they intend to use, but this typically extends to the name and address of the sub-contractor and does not include detail of the actual number of sub-contracted staff or their pay rates. Further, information on sub-contracted companies could be gathered only at disproportionate cost, as a data collection exercise would entail a manual search of procurement case files.
