Dear West Sussex County Council,
I would ask please for the Council's cost of pension provision for WSCC employees and permanent contractors in each of the last five tax years, shown both as a sterling amount and as a percentage of total staff/contractor payroll.
Dear Mr Farman,
Thank you for your enquiry, which has been forwarded to the appropriate
officers for a response. The usual timescale for a response is twenty
working days, that is by or on 19 April 2017.
If for any reason the Council needs to extend this timescale you will be
notified in accordance with the relevant legislation.
Please note that in 2012 the County Council adopted a position in
principle that FoI and EIR requests to West Sussex County Council and the
Council's responses may be published on the Council's website in a
suitably anonymised form. This is in addition to the individual response
to the requestor, and in line with the Council's commitment to
transparency and open data.
