Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the “Act”) dated 28 March 2021.  Under
that request, you asked for the following information to be released to
you:

 

To whom it may concern,

 

I am writing to you to request details of the remuneration of your board
members. I am looking for figures on:

 

a) The number of days of paid work claimed by each individual member of
your board members from Jan to Dec 2020. (Please break this figure down so
it show the totals for each member.)

 

b) The total paid to each board member from Jan to Dec 2020.

 

I am requesting this information under freedom of information legislation
and look forward to your response within 20 working days.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

The Ferret Media Ltd

 

In response to your request I would refer you to Colleges Scotland’s
Articles of Association, published on the Management and Governance page
of our website and in particular Article 57, that states Colleges Scotland
board members are not remunerated, with the exemption of the Chief
Executive, who is also a board member.  This remuneration is paid in
relation to the Chief Executive’s role in the day-to-day running of the
charitable company and not in their capacity as a board member. 
Therefore, on this basis, I would conclude that no board members of the
Colleges Scotland board are remunerated.

 

I can confirm that there have been no expense claims by board members
during the period January 2020 to December 2020.

 

I can also confirm that expense claims submitted by the Chief Executive
for the period January 2020 to December 2020 did not relate to the Chief
Executive’s role as a board member, but in relation to the Chief
Executive’s role in the day-to-day running of the charitable company.
