Departmental Surveys

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if she will place in the Library a copy of the results of her Department's most recent staff survey; which organisation carried out the survey; and what the cost of the survey was. (311507)

The Cabinet Office will publish the October 2009 people survey results on our website in February 2010. Following publication we will place a copy of the results in the Library.

The supplier of the Cabinet Office October 2009 people survey was ORC International which was procured by the Department to deliver the first cross-civil service people survey. The people survey replaced all existing staff surveys in the civil service with a single questionnaire.

The cost of the Cabinet Office survey will be £30,550.

By procuring a single supplier for people surveys in 2009-10 the civil service has saved 35 per cent. on the total cost of staff surveys in 2008-09.
