Dear Mr Ray

 

Reference number: FOI/RAP/04/20/19162

 

On 30^th April 2020 we received the following request for information from
you:-

 

Our Response

 

Your request for information has been considered under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 I can confirm that Hertfordshire County Council does
hold the information you have requested, and can respond as follows:-

 

I would be grateful if you could provide me with the following
information, under the Freedom of Information Act:

·        The current name of the Director of Human Resources

Scott Crudgington, Director of Resources

·        The current name of the Head of Human Resources & Organisational
Development

Sally Hopper, Assistant Director of Human Resources

·        The current names of all the HR Business Partners

We do not disclose employee names below Senior Officer level.

 

We are refusing this information under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000

 

This section of the Act applies to any requested information which is
personal data, in that it relates to an identifiable person. The Act
prevents the County Council from disclosing personal data to the public if
doing so “would contravene any of the data protection principles”. One
such data protection principle (set out in Article 5(1) of the GDPR),
requires that personal data shall be processed “fairly”. In order to
process personal data fairly, the County Council must only handle it in
ways that people would reasonably expect; and not use it in ways that have
unjustified adverse effects on them.

 

In relation to your request, whilst the Council is willing to publish the
names of Senior officers of the Council, more junior staff members, who
are not normally in the public arena , do not have senior responsibilities
and have no expectation we would provide the public with their personal
information or status are not released.

 

It would not be appropriate, fair or lawful processing of their personal
data and we are consequently satisfied the exemption also applies to the
information you have requested.  

This is an absolute exemption.

 

·        The current names of the commissioning officers responsible for
Permanent Executive recruitment tenders/proposals

Richard Hall, Head of Resourcing and Development (within HR) is the lead
for all recruitment activity including permanent executive recruitment
(including the management of proposals)

·        The current name of the Head of Procurement

Paul Drake, Head of Procurement

·        Do you have a preferred supplier framework for Permanent
Executive Recruitment

No

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, quoting
the reference above. To find out more about Freedom of Information, please
visit [1]http://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/your-cou...

 

If you are unhappy with the way the County Council has handled your
request for information you may request an internal review of the request.
This will be carried out by a member of the County Council Legal Services
Team, who has had no prior involvement with the request. Requests for an
internal review should be sent to the Information Governance Unit at the
address above.

 

If you are unhappy with the outcome of the internal review you are
entitled to ask the Information Commissioner to investigate your
complaint. You should write to: FOI/EIR Complaints Resolution, Information
Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF.

 

Yours sincerely
