Departmental Temporary Employment

Volume 482: debated on Wednesday 5 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether any (a) contractor, (b) consultant and (c) member of staff from an employment agency, working in (i) his Department and (ii) DFT Human Resources was hired by single tender action. (232643)

[holding answer 3 November 2008]: Both the Department (i) and DFT Human Resources (ii) currently have contractors and consultants hired by single tender action.

Information about single tender actions for employment agency staff could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. However, agency staff are normally sourced through call-off contracts.
