Senior members of case teams are also responsible for the management of counsel and other experts engaged on SFO cases. The SFO does not hold central records on the contract management time spent by each and every staff member involved and such information could only be provided at a disproportionate cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Requests for temporary staff to be appointed within agreed budgetary provision in the CPS are not required to be accompanied by a formal business case within the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Requests for consultancy staff do require a formal business case within the CPS.</p><p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has not employed any consultants within the past financial year or during the current year. Spend on consultants would require a business case setting out the need for such expenditure to the SFO Finance and HR teams. Requests for temporary staff are agreed when the SFO budget is set at the beginning of the financial year. Any additional temporary recruitment during the year is dependent on discussions with the SFO Finance team and Human Resource team, and on occasion the Chief Operating Officer and would require a business case.</p><p>At GLD, HMCPSI and the AGO, agency workers are engaged through Civil Service contractual arrangements to cover short term vacancies and to secure specific specialist legal and support skills that are not available in-house. For that reason, a formal business case is not normally required, unless it is for new posts where agreement is required to increase the headcount in that business area to support a project to improve the department. The approval mechanism for consultancy spend is not via a resources board although a request for consultancy would need to be accompanied by a business justification.</p>
