Dear Wiltshire College,
Could you please provide me with your agency spend for Lecturers, Assessors and Support Workers for 2013-14 split by agency and department.
Dear Wiltshire College,
Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.
I am writing to request an internal review of Wiltshire College's handling of my FOI request 'Agency spend 2013-14 by agency and department'.
Please respond to my request as 20 days has well passed.
A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...
Further to your message below, we apologise for the delay in replying. As
per our published ‘Freedom of Information Policy’, all requests should be
addressed to [email address]. Unfortunately, although
[Wiltshire College request email] is a valid address it receives a large volume of
junk mail and your request was overlooked during an exceptionally busy
start to the autumn term.
We will respond to your request below by 14 November 2014.
Further to my email of 22 October 2014, we have now had the opportunity to
consider our response to your request.
Wiltshire College has taken the decision not to supply the requested
information for the following reasons:
a) Collating the information requested would require a considerable
amount of management time and, as permitted by the Freedom of Information
Act, we have decided not to allocate valuable resource to this work.
b) The Act also allows us to decline provision of information where
‘it would be used by the enquirer to gain competitive advantage in the
c) Section 43 of the Freedom of Information Act permits public
authorities to protect their commercial interests and those of third
parties with whom they engage.

I understand Wiltshire College has agreed with the University and College Union not to employ staff via an agency. I have also heard that the agency workers who were previously at the college have been offered direct employment at the college - this would be a very good move - would like to know more about this.
