As the head of an independent organisation, it is a matter for the prisons and probation ombudsman (PPO) to determine the complement of his own staff. The PPO considers staff secondments to include staff on detachment from NOMS and from the wider MoJ.
Information on staff secondments during 2005 and 2006 is not held by the PPO. The following table gives numbers, as supplied by the PPO, of staff seconded from NOMS for the period 2007-10. During this period, the PPO seconded no members of staff from the wider Ministry of Justice.
As at October 2011 there were no seconded staff employed by the PPO.
