Dear Mr Briscoe,

Apologies for the delay in responding to your Freedom of Information
request of 25 August 2011, asking for copies of the diaries of the 'head
of ONS' and the National Statistician for the last three years.

Since September 2009 the 'head of ONS' has been the Director General for
ONS. This post has been held by two different people. Prior to September
2009, the National Statistician was the 'head of ONS'. Since September
2008 the post of National Statistician has also been held by two different
people. The tables below give the names of the people holding each post
and the period for which they held it.

+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| Dates | Director General for ONS |
|--------------------------------+--------------------------|
| September 2009 - November 2009 | Rolande Anderson |
|--------------------------------+--------------------------|
| November 2009 to date | Stephen Penneck |
+-----------------------------------------------------------+

+---------------------------------------------------+
| Dates | National Statistician |
|---------------------------+-----------------------|
| August 2005 - August 2009 | Karen Dunnell |
|---------------------------+-----------------------|
| September 2009 to date | Jil Matheson |
+---------------------------------------------------+

ONS uses the Lotus Notes application software to provide its email,
calendar, document and records management and workflow functionality. The
calendar of every member of staff is an integrated part of their email
account. As the former Director General of ONS and the former National
Statistician are no longer part of the organisation, their email accounts
no longer exist, and thus we are not able to provide you with copies of
their calendars.

The ONS Information Management Policy also restricts an individual's email
account size, including their calendar, to a maximum of 125Mb. To keep
within these limits, and for reasons of good housekeeping and records
management, it is necessary to periodically delete calendar entries.
Therefore, past calendar entries for the current Director General for ONS
and National Statistician have been deleted, and a complete record for the
whole period they have held their respective positions is not available.
However, it is possible to provide a complete record of both their
calendars for the period 4 January 2011 to 2 September 2011. An
electronic, searchable record of each is attached. Paper copies of the
calendars of the Director General for ONS and the National Statistician
are not used.

Please note that under s40(2) of the Freedom Of Information Act, some
personal appointments and information has been removed.

 

You have the right to have this response to your freedom of information
request reviewed internally by an internal review process and, if you
remain unhappy with the decision, by the Information Commissioner. If you
would like to have the decision reviewed please write to Dennis Roberts,
Office for National Statistics, Room 1214, Government Buildings, Cardiff
Road, Newport, Gwent, NP10 8XG.

If you have any queries about this email, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

Yours sincerely
