Under the Civil Service Recruitment Principles, DECC has only utilised the exceptions of short term/temporary appointments, secondments and transfers of organisations into the Civil Service – TUPE. Please note DECC only holds data from November 2010. Since this date we have made 150 exception appointments under these categories. The names of those appointed at grade 6 and below (or equivalent) are withheld under the Data Protection Act 1998. Additionally, DECC’s systems do not always record the equivalent grade for those seconded from industry and therefore we are unable to release these names under the Data Protection Act 1998. Our records confirm that we have appointed four members of the SCS as an exception – Peter Boyd, Miles Bradbury, Gordon Dunfield-Prayero and David MacKay.
