Unfortunately, you have not given us enough detail to allow us to answer your request. Could you please be more specific on what roles you require that are classed as unqualified social care roles? Do you mean administration or business support temporary roles?

We look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime your request has been put on hold. If I do not hear from you within 30 days of the date of this letter I will assume that you no longer want the information and I will therefore take no further action. Please note the 20 working day deadline will be extended by the number of working days your request is on hold.

Following a reorganisation of local government in Dorset, this response is from Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council. Information provided will cover these 3 areas.

If you are dissatisfied with this response you can ask for an internal review. The purpose of an internal review is to assess how your Freedom of Information request was handled in the first instance and to determine whether the original response provided met with the requirements of the legislation.

Dear Compliance Team,

Thank you for your reply.

By unqualified social care roles, I mean all roles which fall under the Children & Adults Social Services budget which aren't qualified social worker roles.

If you are able to supply the number of contractors and the total spend for last financial year, Apr 18 - Mar 19, that would be great.

Yours sincerely,

Rachael Greenall

Compliance Team, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council

Further to your request for information received on 14th August 2019, please see below response for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Poole

Question 2
The number of contractors/suppliers and the total spend for last financial year, Apr 18 - Mar 19.
Unfortunately, this information is not held in a format that would enable us to extract the information you require and will therefore exceed the cost/time limit. The appropriate limit currently specified by the Regulations for local authorities is £450. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending two and a half working days, or 18 hours in locating, retrieving and extracting the information requested. Therefore, the data requested is exempt from disclosure under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.

Under the Transparency Statutory Code, we are required to publish payments made to suppliers with a value of £500 or over (exclusive of VAT), please see links to access this information:
