FOI reference: FOI/18/02780 
Date received: 3 October 2018 
Date responded: 25 October 2018
Information requested
Broken down by financial years 2016/17 and 17/18, please provide the names (and the organisations represented) of everyone seconded to the SG, as well as the roles they carried out and the length of the secondment.
Secondees, their employers and the Scottish Government business areas hosting secondees, agree specific functions on a case by case basis. While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the costs of locating, retrieving and detailing specific functions would exceed the upper cost limit of £600. As you will appreciate we cannot provide names - exemption s.38(1)(b) Personal data relating to a third party.

Your other requests are detailed at Annex A.
