Departmental Surveys

Volume 503: debated on Monday 11 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will place in the Library a copy of the results of his Department’s most recent staff survey; which organisation carried out the survey; and what the cost of the survey was. (310234)

The Wales Office people survey was delivered as part of the Ministry of Justice people survey, and as such its costs were borne by, and not split out from, those of the Ministry of Justice. The Ministry of Justice’s share of ORC International’s costs for providing the 2009 survey was £192,000. By procuring a single supplier for staff surveys in 2009-10 the civil service has saved 35 per cent. on the total cost of staff surveys in 2008-09. The results are expected to be received next month and we will put a copy in the Library in due course.
