Service/production contracts

Waiting for an internal review by British Broadcasting Corporation of their handling of this request.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
In addition to employing staff, the BBC engages a number of personnel on so-called service contracts generally, but not exclusively through a third party organisation. These people do not form part of the payroll.
How many such people does the BBC currently engage using this arrangement where the overall annualised cost to the BBC (excl.VAT) falls in the following bands:
• £150k - £250k
• £250,001 - £500k
• £500,001 - £1m
• £1,000,001 - £2m
• Greater than £2m

Yours faithfully,

David Alfred

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Service/production contracts'.

My request is for numbers of people NOT their identities. The exemption you quote does not apply as the individuals involved remain anonymous.
You of course know this and are simply prevaricating, so I expect the Information Commissioner will end up deciding. It just wastes a lot of everyone's time. Ho hum.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...
Yours faithfully,
