This table provides consultancy spend for 2013/14 full year and year to date spend for 2014/15 for non-capital areas. Due to the nature of consultants and their interaction with us as an organisation TfL only record the number of consultants who require access to our IT systems.

The number of consultants used by TfL varies year to year depending on the nature of projects undertaken.
