2. Number of jobs held by each agency at 30-June-21 (including agencies who are now no longer on the framework) for both frameworks (generation 2 & 3)?

Response

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested. This is because we do not hold information on the total spend with each public body in relation to Spring Technologies or the number of jobs [live placements] with Spring Technologies at the time.

This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested.
