Departmental Surveys

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will place in the Library a copy of the results from his Department’s most recent staff survey; which organisation carried out the survey; and what the total cost of the survey was. (310767)

The results of HM Treasury’s latest staff survey, undertaken in October 2009 are not yet available. HM Treasury will publish its staff survey results on the public website in early February, once they have been received and communicated to staff. Following publication we will place a copy of the results in the Library.

The supplier for HM Treasury’s staff survey in October 2009 was ORC International who were procured by the Cabinet Office 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 2009-10 People Survey for HM Treasury was £23,142. 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 from HM Treasury’s previous staff surveys can already be found in the Library.
