The number of GPC cardholders who were paid off-payroll, employed on a part-time basis and employed as a non-permanent employee in the Home Office including its Executive agencies is as follows:

Financial year Number off GPC cardholders paid off-payroll Number GPC cardholders employed on a part-time basis Number of GPC cardholders employed as a non-permanent employee
2010-11 16 103 18
2011-12 4 88 11

Information on the number of GPC cardholders employed in the Home Office and its Executive agencies in 2009-10 is not held centrally and to obtain the information would incur disproportionate cost.

The Government Equalities Office (GEO) joined the Home Office under machinery of government changes in April 2011. Prior to that date no information on GPC cardholders was held.

In 2011-12 no procurement card holders in GEO were paid off-payroll, employed on a part-time basis or employed as a non-permanent employee.
