EDDC employee number statistics not published for 6 months

EDDC has now missed six publication dates in a row for its statistics about how many people are employed by them.

The last figures available are for December 2016.

They used to be published regularly, at least quarterly and usually monthly.

What on earth is going on?

Surely, an accurate picture of the numbers of staff employed is required for the design of the new HQ?

Either EDDC are not bothering to record their staff numbers, which at a time of relocation is particularly foolish, or they are knowingly declining to tell us exactly how the figures are changing in this time of austerity and belt-tightening.

Either way, not good.
