This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (details).


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

Response to this request is long overdue. Although not legally required to do so, we would have expected NHS Shared Business Services to have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NHS Shared Business Services,

Every year the public sector in Scotland spends millions of pounds
on projects of all sorts. It would appear that in many cases
project staff and managers are not properly qualified. Can you
please provide;

a) Your project management training strategy (e.g. Prince 2, APM,
PMI)?
b) The number of qualified staff, to one of the above standards, in
your organisation?
c) The number of unqualified staff working on projects?
d) The name of the person responsible for project management
training strategy?

Yours faithfully,

Martin McKenna.
