RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST
West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information requested on 9th July 2019
Please find below a summary of our findings.
Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would please like to request the following information on the salary of ALL SET members. To be specific I would like the information to be presented in a way where I can obtain:
- the role of each person, whether they are uniform or support members of staff, their gross salary, whether they are a permanent or temporary on SET, any bonuses, overtime or additional payments and why, and this information to be presented by per annum breakdown from the financial year 2014/2015 to now.
I would be grateful if you could let me know when this information will be made available to me. I would also request that you respond to this email electronically (save any printing costs).
This information is published every year on West Midlands Fire Service website and archived on Committee Management System (CMIS) in line with Local Government Transparency Code 2015. However on this occasion I have attached the statements of accounts for you from 2014 to present. These include renumerations to officers’ salaries whom directly report to the Chief Officer, other senior officers salaries is in remuneration bands in line with Local Government Transparency Code 2015.
NOTE - Documents referenced in the above paragraph have been removed, but are available on the Committee Management System referenced above. The latest statement of accounts is linked below.
To name each individual senior officer whom does not report directly to the Chief Fire Officer and release their salaries and employment status would contravene the 6 principle of the Data Protection Act 2018. Therefore this request is exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
In addition I would like to have the job descriptions for all current and past SET members and roles please.
We will be responding to this request in due course and in the interim decide to provide the information above.
If you have any queries about this freedom of information request, please contact us. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.
