Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 24 November 2021.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Each of the following JAC annual reports includes a list of appointments overseen by the JAC:
2017: Jersey Appointments Commission Annual Report
2018: Jersey Appointments Commission Annual Report
2019: Ministerial Decisions
2020: Jersey Appointments Commission Annual Report
For each appointment overseen by the JAC in each year, please confirm which JAC Commissioner(s) sat on the panel.
Please also confirm the appointments overseen by the JAC to date in 2021 and confirm which JAC Commissioner(s) sat on the panel.
For each selected candidate, please confirm the role they held immediately prior to being appointed.
Please also confirm the salary and / or expenses claimed for each of the JAC Commissioners and the Chair for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 so far.
For years prior to 2021 this information is not held centrally and would require manual consolidation of multiple data sources in order to provide a response and therefore Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
It is estimated that the cost of extracting the data would exceed the cost limit provisions set out in the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014.
