FOI Request - Moray Council Overtime Payments
Overtime Payments 2011-12 £1.83 million (£1.67 million + £0.164 million standby cover)
Overtime Payments 2012-13 £1.10 million ((£1.026 million + £0.070 million standby cover) Expenditure to October 2013.
Overtime Payments from October 2013 to date.
On an individual department service and staffing basis; could you please provide me with a schedule/breakdown on where the overall overtime expenditure is occurring?
Relative to the above I would also request details of staffing levels/shortfalls during the period of overtime payments.
For my part and in terms of clarity and accountability (particularly in these times of Austerity) I would advocate a monthly publication of the overtime payments paid by the Council across ALL departments/services. Hopefully this would go some way in helping Moray's ratepayers understand the justification of these payments.
