The request was successful.

Dear West Midlands Combined Authority,

I’m writing an academic article about understaffing in Mayoral Combined Authorities in the UK, particularly in business support delivery functions.

With this in mind, please let me know:

1. Total staff in the combined authority

2. Number of policy staff

3. Number of delivery staff

4. Number of finance staff

5. Number of legal staff

6. Number of seconded staff

7. An structure chart so I can understand the make up of the organisation.

8. Total annual spend on capital and revenue projects to benefit the economy.

Yours faithfully,

Raj Thandh
