The Freedom of Information Act relates to recorded information held by a public authority, at the time that the request is made. I have listed your questions below and answered each one in turn.
Temporary non-clinical agency spend in 2020?
I can confirm that NICE’s spend for the financial year 2019 to 2020 agency spend was £385,503.

Which agencies did you use for temporary non-clinical recruitment in 2020?
