HMRC currently has working on the Customs Declaration Service Programme; a) 70 contingent labour contractors, b) 466 IT supplier resource and c) 176 civil servants. The number of contractors and IT suppliers working on the programme has varied over time. HMRC only employs contractors when there is a clearly identifiable skills gap that it cannot fill within the existing staff resources at its disposal.
