The programme is further supported by a specialist mix of external IT suppliers (who have assigned 102 people on the project) and contingent labour (of 105 people). These numbers do not include ‘business as usual’ support from Operational staff in HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) e.g. on customer support and compliance.
