Temporary Staffing

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Cornwall Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Cornwall Council,

Below are the questions i'm looking for clarification on.

1. How much money did the council spend on temporary agency staff for the financial year 2014/2015?

2. What formal arrangements are in place with regards to temporary agency staffing? (i.e. managed service, PSL, etc.)

3. What was the off contract spending for the financial year 2014/2015?

4. Which job category has the highest temporary staffing spend?

5. When does your current arrangement expire?

Yours faithfully,

Gemma Best

Cornwall Council

Thank you for your Freedom of Information/Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) request - Reference IAR - 101002424243. In normal circumstances we will provide a response within 20 working days of receiving your request.

In the majority of cases, the response will be sent to you from Cornwall Council. However, the Council has a number of wholly owned arms length companies and where the information is held by these companies, the request will be administered and responded to by the relevant company. This includes Cornwall Housing, CORMAC and Cornwall Development Company (CDC).

There may be some instances where we will need to contact you in the order to clarify parts of your request, or where the cost of dealing with your request is excessive due to the time involved in collating the information. If this is the case we will help you to narrow the request to take it under any cost limit. Under EIR Regulations, there are also instances where a charge may be applied for information that is not required to be routinely published. We will notify you if this is the case.

There may also be a small number of occasions where we may need to extend the 20 working day deadline. We will inform you if this is likely. More information can also be found on our Freedom of information pages using the following link:

Cornwall Council and its arms length companies are committed to open and transparent government and provide information to members of the public about all aspects of the Council and these companies. Over 4000 requests for information are received each year and it is estimated that the cost to the Council and its arms length companies of dealing with each request ranges between £150 and £350 to administer. You may be able to find the information by checking previous responses using

or checking the Council?s website at www.cornwall.gov.uk.

Therefore if you do subsequently find the information you require by this method and no longer wish us to process your request, please let us know.
