My question concerns appointments made by the Jersey Appointments Commission.
On the website for the above body is a link to a document entitled the "Conflict of Interest form". Could you please tell me (1) how many of these have been completed and filed since January 2018, (2) who completed them and (3) which applications they referred to if the subject of that conflict went on to be appointed.
The Government of Jersey does not hold a central record of the number of conflicts of interest forms that have been completed.
It is the responsibility of the panel Chair to ensure any conflicts of interest are declared and circulate it to other panel members in advance of the interview and take appropriate action. At the end of the recruitment and selection process the panel Chair must summarise the selection decision and retain documentation on all candidates in a secure place, in accordance with Data Protection principles, for a period of 12 months after the year in which the recruitment took place.
In the case of Senior Recruitment, the Appointments Commissioner will, at each stage of the process, ask all involved if any potential Conflicts of Interest exist. In the assignment of a commissioner to a role a process of declaration also takes place; it is the responsibility of the Chair of the JAC to oversee the assignment of commissioners.
