Dear Ms Howells

Further to your Freedom of Information Request regarding the use of
agency staff, the answers to your queries are set out below:

How many agencies are you currently using for your temporary recruitment
requirements?

TWO

How many agencies are you using for your permanent recruitment
requirements?

NONE

What is your annual agency spend?

We are unable to release this information as the information is exempt
information under Section 43 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
which deals with prejudice to commercial interests. This is a qualified
exemption and we have therefore applied the public interest test. In
making this decision we have weighed such factors as the Council's
desire to be open and transparent in all its dealings against the need
to ensure that it is able to contract openly in the market place.

Accordingly, insofar as this element of your request is concerned and in
accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 ("the
Act") this e-mail acts as a Refusal Notice. As you may be aware you have
a right of appeal against this decision. If you wish to exercise this
right please set out in writing your grounds and send your appeal to the
Council's Corporate Feedback Coordinator. Her name is Mrs. Christine
Macey and she may be reached at [email address] or
on 01443 424076. Additionally you may, if you wish, find out more about
the Act from the Information Commissioner at http://www.ico.gov.uk/

If you are using a neutral vendor can you tell me when the contract is
up for tender please?

The Authority uses a Master Vendor and it is up for review in July 2015.

Yours sincerely

Claire
