The Department’s Agency Staff spend is published annually in BEIS Annual Report and Accounts here under note 3 ‘Staff costs’. Agency spend is shown as financial years in the ‘Wages and Salaries’ line under the ‘Others’ column, representing non-permanent core BEIS staff. Annual spend on Agency spend is not held centrally and can only be obtained disproportionally.

Spend relating to financial year 2021-22 will be published later this year. BEIS Annual Report and Accounts are laid in Parliament once they have been certified by the Comptroller & Auditor General (C&AG).

We do not pay agency retainers as our policy is only to use Crown Commercial Framework contracts.
