Inside IR35 Engagements

The request was successful.

Dear Queen's Printer for Scotland,

Under FoI, please could you tell me:

- How many open positions you have for "inside IR35" workers/contractors? (ie. how many positions are you advertising but so far have not found suitable people to fill)
- How many filled "inside IR35" positions do you have? (ie. how many people are working for you with "inside IR35" conditions)

You're welcome to use any time in the recent past for these calculations, although the more recent the better, please (and please tell me what time you used). The length of tenure, either expected or worked is not important - just the number of positions is enough for me.

For example:

"On January 22nd, we had 12 open inside-IR35 positions, and 5 filled".

Yours faithfully,

Ralph Bolton

Dear Mr. Bolton,

Thank you for your enquiry of 24 February 2020, in which you asked for
information concerning the number of ?inside IR 35? workers at The
National Archives (TNA) who are engaged in the work of the Office of the
Queen?s Printer Scotland (QPS).

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information (Scotland)
Act 2002. The FOIS Act gives you the right to know whether we hold the
information you want and to have it communicated to you, subject to any
exemptions which may apply.

I can confirm that The National Archives holds information relevant to
your request and we are pleased to be able to provide this information to
you.

Please note that the staff who deliver the services for QPS also support
wider work across the UK and therefore no individual member of staff at
The National Archives is fully allocated to QPS. Most of the QPS work is
handled by The National Archives? Legislation Services team. We have also
identified two other individuals from our Policy team, as well as our
Chief Executive, who are engaged in the work of the QPS.

I can confirm that we do not have any staff employed ?inside IR35? at The
National Archives ? they are either paid through payroll or through a
recruitment agent as is our policy.

At the time of your request we can therefore confirm that the total number
of filled posts engaged in the work of the QPS, which are ?inside IR 35?,
is none.

At the time of your request, no ?inside IR 35? posts have been advertised
for posts that will be engaged in QPS work.

If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our response to your request
for information please send full details to:

[KPS request email]   

Or write to:

The Queen?s Printer for Scotland
The Library
GD Bridge
Victoria Quay
Edinburgh
EH6 6QQ

Any complaint will be acknowledged within two working days of receipt and
we will respond in full within twenty working days.

You also have the right to ask the Scottish Information Commissioner (SIC)
to investigate any aspect of your complaint, though the SIC is likely to
expect internal complaints procedures to have been exhausted before
beginning his investigation.

Yours sincerely,

FOI Assessor
Freedom of Information Centre
The National Archives
