Dear Ms Taylor
WCG does not hold the information in the format you have requested, i.e.
broken down by lecturers, assessors, tutors, support workers, etc.
However, information in relation to agency spend is available in WCG's
statutory accounts which is published via its Publication Scheme. The
Publication Scheme can be located by clicking on the following link:
[1]https://wcg.ac.uk/page/464/publication-s...
You will find the information on page 40 of the accounts under Note 8 -
Contracted out staffing services.
The column heading 'College' includes staffing services of 'WCG Limited' a
wholly owned subsidiary of Warwickshire College. WCG Limited  provides
human resources provision and management of human resources functions. The
company number is 02790412.
The column heading 'Group' refers to the use of external contract staff
services, i.e. those genuinely  outside the Group and WCG Limited.
WCG is unable to provide information broken down by agency and is applying
the absolute exemption at section 41(1) of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 (information provided in confidence). The disclosure of the
information into the public domain, as broken down by agency/employment
business, combined with the associated spend per agency/employment
business would constitute a breach of confidence actionable by that or
another person.
WCG is also applying the qualified exemption at section 43 of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (prejudicial to commercial interests). This
exemption permits public authorities to protect its own commercial
interests and those of third parties with whom it engages. With regard to
the application of the public interest test, WCG believes that the factors
that weigh in favour in withholding this information include:
1) disclosure would make it less likely that companies or individuals
would provide WCG with commercially sensitive information in the future
and consequently undermine the ability of WCG to fulfil its role; and
2) disclosure would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of WCG
by affecting adversely its bargaining position during contractual
negotiations which would result in the less effective use of public money.
This response constitutes WCG's full response to your request for
information.
Please find attached WCG's Information Rights Appeal Procedure.
