To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many staff working for her Department, its executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies are employed through off-payroll engagements costing less than £58,200 per annum; and if she will make a statement.
The Department for Transport, its agencies and non-departmental public bodies provide monthly workforce data. The data for April 2012 shows 401 staff employed through off-payroll engagements.
The Department generally uses specialist contracts and interim labour where there are short/medium-term specific skills requirements. Some are obtained through a central contract and currently there are 15 staff employed through this contract whose daily rate is equivalent to less than £58,200 per annum.
There are other off-payroll engagements but it would involve disproportionate cost to establish the precise number whose daily rate is equivalent to less than £58,200 per annum.
