Dear Sam Cremore,

Can you please respond to my request for your agency spend 2020/21 to date split by lecturer, assessor and support staff. If this could also be split by agency it would be greatly appreciated.
By law, under all circumstances, you should have responded by now as this request is long overdue

Hi Debbie,

Thanks for you email.

Apologies you've yet to receive a response to your request.

I've chased our HR department today and informed them that the deadline, by my calculation, was yesterday and that I need a response ASAP.

Thanks,

Hi Debbie,

I'm very sorry to keep you waiting for a response to your request.

I've received a reply from our accounts team but had to send it back as I don’t think it properly meets your criteria.

I've given further instructions and will continue to chase and will keep you updated as to my progress.

Thanks,

Sam

Dear Debbie,

 

Thank you again for your e-mail of 30 June in which you asked the
following:

 

“Can you provide a breakdown of money spent on
Lecturers/Assessors/Learning Support via recruitment agencies for the
20/21 Academic year. Split by temporary and permanent.

 

Can you also specify the money spent with each specific agency and in
which department?”

 

We have now completed searching for the information you requested. My
apologies again for the lateness of this reply.

 

I have now been informed that, in relation to your first question, the
money spent on lecturers, assessors and learning support via recruitment
agencies for the academic year 2020/21 was £587,385.01. All were temporary
staff.

 

A copy of the information relating to your second request is attached.

 

I hope this answers your queries but please let me know if you require
anything further.  

 

I should make you aware that, 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 email and should be addressed to
[email address].

 

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
