To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many procurement card holders in his Department were (a) paid off-payroll, (b) employed on a part-time basis and (c) employed as a non-permanent employee in (i) 2009-10, (ii) 2010-11 and (iii) 2011-12.
The breakdown by staff type of Government procurement card holders is given in the following table. It should be noted that our cardholder records do not distinguish between full-time and part-time civil servants. For the purposes of this response the term ‘non-permanent-employees’ has been defined as ‘on-payroll staff on fixed term contracts’.
Off-payroll staff include those seconded into the Department from other organisations to fulfil a civil service role, such as from national health service bodies and other Government Departments.
