Holding answer received on 22 January 2015

a) Recruitment agency fees are contained within the invoices submitted by the agency, the rate of charge will vary depending on the individual candidate’s pay rates but this charge is not separately identified on the invoice hence the Department is unable to separate agency charges from the overall payment to the agency for each candidate. b) The total spent on outplacement agency fees for displaced or redundant staff over the past 5 years is as follows:

2014-15 £0

2013-14 £0

2012-13 £63,000

2011-12 £0

2010-11 £63,000

(Figures are inclusive of recoverable VAT) c) The total spent on Staff Training over the past 5 years is as follows:

2014/15 £174,347**

2013/14 £225,289

2012/13 £133,106

2011/12 £303,975
