Dear Issy Simons  

I refer to your recent email dated 11^th November 2019 requesting the
following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“FOIA”):

“For Finance only:

• Total number of staff
• Total number of SCS1 finance staff
• Department structure
• Total number of agency workers / contractors (please include those on
fixed term contract but not internal secondment)
• Frameworks used to procure interim staff in this area “
Response

Total number of staff – 46.47 FTE.
Total number of SCS1 finance staff – Student Loans Company Limited (“SLC”)
is not part of the Civil Service pay and grade structure, therefore there
is no member of the Finance Department who is classified as ‘SCS1’.
Department structure – please see attached structure charts.
Total number of agency workers / contractors (please include those on
fixed term contract but not internal secondment) – 6.93 FTE.
Frameworks used to procure interim staff in this area – SLC uses two
frameworks for recruitment of Finance staff:
1.        the Public Sector Resourcing Crown Commercial Services Framework
(RM3749); and

2.        our own Professional Services Framework for the recruitment of
permanent, fixed term and agency staff as and when required, with the
following suppliers:
·        Badenoch & Clark;
·        FPSG Connect Ltd;
·        Brightwork;
·        Hays; and
·        Morgan Hunt.

Internal review process

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review.

Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date
of receipt of the response to your original request and should be
addressed to the Freedom of Information Office, Student Loans Company
Limited, 100 Bothwell Street, Glasgow, G2 7JD,  or by email:
[SLC request email].  Please remember to quote the reference number
above in any future communications.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

Information Commissioner's Office
