1 The 2006-07 figure is a forecast only, and is a best estimate based on current outturn.

2 Forecast for 2006-07 reflects the taking on of a very large team from the DLO (Technical Enabling Services).

3 In April 2006, the Pay and Pensions Agency (PPA) was subsumed into a wider People, Pay and Pensions Agency (PPPA). The personnel costs to be reported in the 2006-07 report and accounts for the PPPA indicated above reflect the increased responsibilities of the new agency.

Note:

Each individual agency has supplied its own personnel costings to DASA. The 2005-06 figure is in each agency’s annual report and accounts.
