Bonus Payment Scandal - Metrics 22/23

Tim McCormack made this Freedom of Information request to Post Office Limited Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Post Office Limited,

In Ms Burton's report she states in the final paragraph:

7. The Remco will review the terms of the 2022/23 STIP when it meets later in June and I will be
recommending that Remco exercises its discretion not to award the element of bonus
specifically relating to the Inquiry. Any variable pay schemes going forward should not include
any metrics relating to the Inquiry

Could you please provide me with the wording of the 2022/23 STIP Metric that, as she states, specifically relates to the Inquiry.

Please provide me with the date of the REMCO meeting that initially approved that metric.

Please provide me with the minutes of the REMCO meeting that initially approved that metric.

Yours faithfully,

Tim McCormack
