|B. Shortfall of staffing availability against requirement by operational area 30 April 2007Public Sector|
|Area||Shortfall on unified staffing requirement having included CSH||Shortfall on non-unified staffing requirement having included agency staff|
|(1) Unified staff are officer grade staff and operational managers.|
(2) CSHContracted supplementary hours.
Notes on public sector prison figures:
1. The shortfall is shown after accounting for the contribution of contracted supplementary hours and agency staff.
2. The totals have not been offset by surpluses at other locations but have been offset by surpluses in individual grades within one site.
3. A dash represents an establishment that is either fully staffed or reporting a surplus. A zero represents a shortfall of a fraction of a post that rounds to zero.
4. The columns in the table cannot sensibly be added together to find an overall level of shortfall. This is because dashes represent either no shortfall or an unstated level of surplus that could be used to offset overall staffing variances.
5 The information is derived from the Personnel Corporate Database, Oracle HRMS and quarterly forecast change forms. These systems are liable to the normal inaccuracies associated with any large-scale reporting systems.
