There are 24 individuals in core BIS who earn between £100,000 and £142,499. In addition there are nine individuals in BIS who earn over £142,500.

The Government are committed to publishing senior staff data as part of the transparency agenda. BIS data from these exercises is available on the website

Data from BIS non-departmental public bodies is available at
