The Regiment was under the control of the Quatermaster Generals Branch. Mainly as a Police Role and orderlies. The duties of the Royal Staff Corps was taken over by the Regiment of Sappers and Miners and eventually disbanded in 1833.
Royal Staff Corps were another separate body under command of the Horse Guards (ie the Army).  The units above were under command of the Board of Ordnance (Royal Artillery and Engineers).
The official dividing line was that the RSC did the temporary field works and the Engineers did the more permanent things.  RSC usually did bridging, the RE did sieges and permanent fortifications.
In 1830 (around) the RSC was disbanded and amalgamated with the Royal Engineers.
