FOI - Expenditure on equality, diversity, and inclusivity.

We're waiting for Rob Bates to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear HM Chief Inspector of Prisons for Scotland,
I wish to make an FOI request, as set out under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please can your organisation provide in Excel CSV format, the following information:

a) The number of roles in your association (expressed in numbers of FTE), that are mainly or exclusively focussed on issues of equality, diversity, or inclusivity. For example, this could include (amongst other guises) “EDI officers” or “diversity and inclusion project managers” but would not include general HR managers.

b) Either a) the pay band of each of these roles, or b) the combined total salaries for these roles. Whichever measure is more in accordance with your data preferences.

c) In the past 12 months the number of staff days across your organisation which have been committed to attending equality training programmes, whether internally run or with external consultants. (staff days = duration of the training programme multiplied by the number of staff in attendance for the course).

d) The contractual cost of any consultants hired, in the past twelve months, to provide any external training or advice on issues of diversity, equality, or inclusivity.

e) In the past twelve months, the number of staff days committed to attending conferences relating mainly or exclusively to matters of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. (duration of conference multiplied by the number of staff in attendance).

f) The costs of attending these conferences.

g) Membership costs the organisation pays for participation in equality charters such as the Stonewall Equality Champions, or Diversity and Inclusion Workplace champions.

Please can this information be returned to me, via email, ([email address]) within 20 working days.

The most desirable csv layout would be the letter (a-g) in column A and then the information you hold in column B. If your organisation does not hold information in relation to any of the letters please file as N/A.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Bates

Dear Mr Bates

I am writing to acknowledge receipt of your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Unfortunately it was received into the mailbox of a member of staff who has been off and only just retuned to work. These requests would normally be received via our website into a shared mailbox that is checked daily.

Given the lateness of our acknowledgement, I will aim to provide you with a response by the end of the week.

Kind regards

Kerry Love
