Dear Sir or Madam

This is a Freedom of Information request about secondments into your department. I am making this request because I believe it is in the public interest in understanding for the number and nature of agreements that facilitate the exchange of skills and expertise between government and other commercial and social organisations. I also believe there is a public interest in understanding how conflicts of interest are managed.

1. Please state how many people are currently on secondment.

For each current secondment, please state:

a) civil service seniority level
b) job title
c) organisation seconded from
d) date commenced

2. Please state how many secondments concluded since 1 January 2016.

For each concluded secondment, please state:

a) civil service seniority level
b) job title
c) organisation seconded from
d) date commenced
e) date finished

3. Please state the name and purpose of each form that is completed by the department and/or the secondee during the process of declaring and manning conflicts.

Thank you for the time and energy you will invest in preparing a response. If you consider that some information is exempt from disclosure under one of the exemptions in the FOIA please cite which exemptions you are using to redact information.

Please also explain, in line with the guiding principles of the Information Tribunal, how the public interest would, or would be likely, to be materially prejudiced by disclosure. I would prefer to receive all information in electronic format and in machine-readable formats where applicable. I would be grateful if you could acknowledge receipt of this request.

Best wishes,
Lucas Amin
