Transport for London (TfL) does not, of course, directly employ the people working on projects for consulting or Professional Services firms.

Consultants are typically brought into the business to deliver a defined piece of work and for an agreed price. The team they decide to deploy to deliver that work is a matter for the firm itself. TfL is, therefore, unable to confirm the exact number of individual consultants currently working in the business.

A review of the use of Professional Service consultants is under way and will enable further savings across TfL.
