answer text <p>The table below details the number of full time equivalent officials in the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) that are progressing sector strategies in teams responsible for supporting sectors. BIS does not as a matter of routine count officials in the way asked, because officials will typically fulfil more than one role. The information has therefore required judgements to be made on the amount of time officials spend on progressing strategies to support sectors. The counts do not include officials in other teams who are sources of additional expertise, for example analytical or legal advice, or officials in other departments contributing to the delivery of the sector strategies.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Sector</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>G5 FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>G6 FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>G7 FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>SEO FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>HEO FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>EO FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>AO FTE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Total</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Aerospace</p></td><td><p>0.4</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p>2.0</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 4.4</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Agritech</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>3.7</p></td><td><p>0.8</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>5.5</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Automotive</p></td><td><p>0.4</p></td><td><p>1.8</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 6.0</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Chemicals</p></td><td><p>0.3</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p><strong>3.0</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Construction</p></td><td><p>0.25</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>4</p></td><td><p>3</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 7.25</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Creative Industries</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>0.5</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Defence</p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.6</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 1.3</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Digital</p></td><td><p>0.25</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.25</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.25</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 1.75</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Electronic Systems</p></td><td><p>0.1</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.7</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 1.3</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>International Education</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 4.5</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Life Sciences</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td><td><p>1.8</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>6.1</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Marine</p></td><td><p>0.1</p></td><td><p>0.3</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 1.4</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Nuclear</p></td><td><p>0.1</p></td><td><p>0.75</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 2.85</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Offshore Wind</p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>0.6</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 3.8</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Oil and Gas</p></td><td><p>0.3</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>2.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p><strong> 3.5</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Professional &amp; Business Services</p></td><td><p>0.1</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>1.0</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 2.6</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Rail</p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p>0.75</p></td><td><p>0.5</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 1.95</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Retail</p></td><td><p>0.1</p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p>0.2</p></td><td><p>0.1</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong> 0.6</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
