Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 01 August 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Can you please confirm how many additional civil servants, split into hierarchy levels, were taken on in in order for Mr C Parker to commence the OneGov debacle, since January 2018?
For the same period, can you please confirm how many civil servants were employed prior to the start of A above?
Mr C Parker brought in experienced, high level colleagues from the UK to commence the OneGov thing. How many of those personnel are still working in Gov. How many are under Contract? When do their Contracts end?
The OneGov thing was an unmitigated disaster. How many of the extra personnel in A above are still employed by the Government/taxpayer, together with their pension advantages? Why are they still employed when clearly the volume of work must be less.?
Information in relation to this is publicly available on www.gov.je in response to a previous Freedom of Information request. Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law has been applied.
