Thank you for your email dated 6 January where you requested the following information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA):
- I would like the information to cover the last two financial years (2014/15, 2015/16) and to be broken down by year.
- I would like to know how many members of staff have received bonuses or performance related payments during this period?
- I would like to know the total amount of money which was paid out in bonuses or performance related payments to staff during this period?
- I would like to know the range of monetary value of the performance related payments or bonuses paid out from the highest to the lowest?
I refer you to previous FOISA requests numbers R011524 & R012142 on our COPFS website regarding payment performance related bonuses. I can confirm the position is still the same and that COPFS does not pay out bonuses.
