Acting team leaders

We're waiting for Jack Pico to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Transport for London,

Under the FOI Act, I would like to request the following information, please. My questions relate to the Roads and Transport Enforcement Operations within the CPOS Directorate of Surface Transport.

1.) I would like to know how much an acting team leader on development opportunity costs on average in a period, taking into account their pay and the loss of revenue by not deploying them on street.
2.) I would like to know if acting team leaders are authorised to work from home or leave before the end of their shift, and under which policy, since their substantial grade is operational.
3.) I would like to receive a copy of the business case justifying the existence of acting team leaders.

Regards

Yours faithfully,
Jack Pico

Dear Mr Pico

 

Our ref: FOI-1234-1920/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 22
July 2019 asking for information about the Roads and Transport Enforcement
Operations within the CPOS.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that
we do hold the information you require.

 

1.    I would like to know how much an acting team leader on development
opportunity costs on average in a period, taking into account their pay
and the loss of revenue by not deploying them on street.

 

Acting Team Leaders are paid in line with Roads and Transport Enforcement
Operations (RTEO) T&C and are not receiving any additional pay for taking
on this role. We consider their release into this role as covering
essential supervisory positions awaiting the conclusion of CPOS Operations
Transformation. These acting roles will cease within the next few months
once the assessment and selection process for Assistant Operations
Managers has completed.

 

 2. I would like to know if acting team leaders are authorised to work
from home or leave before the end of their shift, and under which
policy, since their substantial grade is operational.

 

Working from home is not part of the role but there may be extenuating
circumstances where flexibility of working is required and would be
authorised by a line manager.

 

      3. I would like to receive a copy of the business case justifying
the existence of acting team leaders.

 

There is no business case and the decision to have acting team leaders was
made by the CPOS Operations Senior Management team based on business
needs.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for please do not hesitate
to contact me.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Transport for London,

Regarding your response to my second question, under the FOI Act I would like to further know whether there were any "extenuating circumstances" on the 25th and 31st August 2019 making it necessary for RTEO team leaders to work from home?
Please also confirm if the RTEO team leaders rostered to work on these dates followed the correct procedure and requested to work from home, and who (i.e. grade or job title) authorised it?

Yours sincerely,

Jack Pico

Dear Mr Pico,

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1684-1920

 

Thank you for your further email of 31^st August 2019 asking for
information about Roads and Transport Enforcement Officer (RTEO) acting
team leaders.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.

 

Specifically you asked:

 

“Regarding your response to my second question, under the FOI Act I would
like to further know whether there were any "extenuating circumstances" on
the 25th and 31st August 2019 making it necessary for RTEO team leaders to
work from home?  Please also confirm if the RTEO team leaders rostered to
work on these dates followed the correct procedure and requested to work
from home, and who (i.e. grade or job title) authorised it?”

 

I can confirm that we hold the requested information. However, it is
exempt from release in line with section 40(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act, the exemption relating to personal data. This exemption
applies where somebody can be identified from the information in question
and where such identification would be unfair. In this case, the number of
staff in these positions is so few that they, and other members of their
team, would be able to identify exactly who the information relates to.
The question of release therefore depends on whether or not it is fair on
those individuals for information about their whereabouts on a given day
to be put into the public domain. We do not believe that this is fair, and
we do not believe that the individuals in question would expect such
information to be released. Whether or not a member of TfL staff was in
the office or at home on any given day, and the reasons why, is a matter
between them and their management, and we can see no obvious public
interest that would override the right of staff to have such personal data
protected. To release such information would be a breach of the Data
Protection Act (DPA), specifically the first principle of the DPA which
requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. Section
40(2) of the FOI Act (which ensures compliance with the DPA) is therefore
engaged.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

David Wells
