Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'BBC HR Attrition'.

I think it says a lot about the BBC HR Department if they are unable even to know what their own attrtiom and recruitment figures are and doesn't bode well for the remainder of the BBC. I believe that BBC HR are again withholding information. This is now a multiple request which has been refused due to probably uncovering the mess that BBC HR is in. I would like an internal review as surely there is a simple way of searching on the system People who joined the BBC for HR in the last three years and then doing a report of those who left and match the data?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...

Dear FOI Enquiries,

Are you really telling me that the BBC does not simply know even part of these questions. So you can't simply use the system that I believe everyone is loaded into to tell ;

- how many external people were recruited to fill the roles and by what grade 2015, 2016 and 2017
- how many of those external people are still employed by the BBC - how many left?

This is another cover up by BBC HR. Why is it you refuse blatantly to answer any requests for BBC HR? What is being h9dden here?

Why is it you are able to demonstrate cost savings in the HR department then?

Yours sincerely,

Lorraine Bower

Dear FOI Enquiries,

I would like to point you to

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

Where a similar request was asked for and initially the BBC said it would be outside the time. On the internal review this was overturned. Please can I ask you to review this.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Lorraine Bower
