Redundancies at Department for Infrastructure (FOI)
Redundancies at Department for Infrastructure (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 19 December 2016.
I wish to place a FOI request for the following information:
My first question relates to the TTS (now Department for Infrastructure) workers that have / will become redundant due to recent budget cuts.
I would like to know as a combined total the cost of their employment (including benefits) and physical materials, and if possible the running of vehicle fleet which they have direct interaction with.
I understand the fleet could be a difficult one to work out so please feel free to bypass if this is the case.
In short how much it costs to employ and provide materials to enable them to carry out the work.
My second question is in relation to the recent contracts with private companies that fill the void which has been created by my aforementioned question.
I would like to know the combined cost of these contracts to the States, only the ones that have be introduced as a direct result of recent redundancies.
To clarify it's is the all departments which have been effected by this year's front line redundancies , largely TTS I assume, but time depending here is a short list and idea of what departments I refer to:
- bin men (refuse collection)
What I would like to know is:
- the cost of running the said departments, pre-redundancies (2015)
- the savings generated by the redundancies once completed (actual or predicted)
- the predicted running costs for said departments next year (if possible / time depending)
- The cost to the states for the private contacts which have replaced said redundancies on these front line services.
A and B
The Parks, Gardens and Cleaning Service Reviews within the Department for Infrastructure (formerly TTS) were completed earlier this year. All of these services have been redesigned and there has been a significant reduction in the number of roles (approximately 100 posts).
Certain work packages are now being undertaken by the private sector through managed contracts at a lower cost to the public.
The table below highlights the savings achieved in Municipal Services (Parks, Gardens and Cleaning Services) following the service reviews:
Parks & Gardens
(Staff, Equipment, Vehicles, Materials, Contractors and associated expenditure but excluding depreciation)
(Staff, Equipment, Vehicles, Materials, Contractors and Associated Expenditure but excluding depreciation)
|£1,721,753 ||£1,470,338 |
|Total Budget|| £3,891,890 ||£2,983,052 |
Note 1 – note that the services undertaken by Parks and Gardens and Cleaning Services in 2017 will be provided by both DFI employees and contractors.
