Dear Amanda,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request 23rd May 2019 requesting details of the College’s recruitment spend per agency for 2018-19.

As the College’s Data Protection Officer and in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I can confirm that the College does hold the detailed commercial information regarding our agency recruitment spend that you have requested.

However, it is my belief that complying with your request would not only result in divulging information that was provided to us in confidence but would also be likely to prejudice that company’s commercial interests.

Therefore, in accordance with Section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I am unable to provide the detailed information that you have requested.

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Davies
Director of Management Information, Systems & Admissions
