The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has paid out more than £3m to five external recruitment agencies since its launch. 
The non-ministerial department replaced the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) as the primary body responsible for enforcing competition law in the UK in April 2014.
Responding to a Freedom of Information Act asking the CMA to list its five highest paid external recruitment agencies with the amount paid, the body revealed in a statement it paid out £3,149,505 to five recruitment agencies since it launched including Capita Resourcing, Hays Accountancy Personnel, LA International Computer Consultants, Parity Resources and LAW Absolute.
Recruiter requested further information about the types of roles recruited for and the total amount spent on agencies since last April but had not heard back by press deadlines.
