Under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) I would like to know the following information:
Please bear in mind that copies of public sector contracts are obligatorily made available under the Statutory Instrument 2012, Amendment 2479.
I confirm that under Section 1 of the FOIA, that we do not hold the information related to the first four parts of your request concerning a Master Vendor contract.
ONR does not have a Master Vendor arrangement with any specific agency for recruitment purposes. Our procurement policy is to run a mini competition between approved agencies under a Crown Commercial Services framework, as the need to temporarily fill a post arises.
In relation to the latter two parts of your request concerning agency workers, ONR currently has five Interim Agency staff, with a further two due to start in January 2020. All of these are fulfilling duties in divisional supporting roles within ONR.
