As part of the closure programme, 461 regional development agency staff have transferred to government departments and non-departmental public bodies between June 2010 and June 2012 in respect of continuing functions or asset transfers. In general there is no additional cost associated with such transfers as, in accordance with the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations or equivalent Cabinet Office protocols, existing terms and conditions are maintained.
