Director of Technology Resources - supplementary information

Alan Smithee made this Freedom of Information request to Office of Communications

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Office of Communications,

On 30th May, I requested information relating to the departure of the Director of Technology Resources (William Webb) from Ofcom. In reply, you stated:

"The former Director of Technology Resources, accepted voluntary redundancy and left the organisation on 31 January 2011."

William Webb has joined Neul in the position of Chief Technology Officer. His role is described on the following web page of Neul http://www.neul.com/management.php The information about the position of William Webb has been on this web page since at least early in January (for all of that time describing his role in the present tense).

It therefore appears that, for a period of around a month or more, William Webb was simultaneously working for Ofcom (with responsibilities for white space technologies) and the Chief Technology Officer of Neul (a company developing a white space technology).

William Webb was also responsible for an Ofcom consultation on geolocation (which is a component of white space technology) that ended on 7th December 2010.

I therefore request:

1) Any correspondence or papers on the subject of white spaces or cognitive access by William Webb from the month of January 2011.

2) Any correspondence or papers by William Webb relating to the content or assessment of responses to the consultation "Implementing Geolocation" that ended on 7th December 2010.

Yours faithfully,

Alan Smithee
