Should Barnet Council have an intranet?

picture credit: The Guardian
Executive summary

  • Barnet Council give information to staff which could be published externally
  • FOI is an essential tool
  • The council are concerned about leakage of information and consequential possible bad publicity
  • Nick Walkley is relatively well paid

An intranet is a computer network that uses Internet Protocol technology to securely share any part of an organization's information or network operating system within that organization.

Here is a message from the Barnet Council intranet which, in theory, Mr Mustard should not have but which he could have asked for under FOI if he knew it existed (a bit of a catch 22 that one).

Learn more about the do’s and don’ts of dealing with information

Tuesday, 06 March 2012 15:15 Schroder, Johnathan
It is common sense for staff to preserve the privacy of sensitive information they deal with at work and many may be wondering what terms like data protection, Freedom of Information and information governance have to do with them?
And yet accidents happen. Several high-profile data breaches in other local authorities have hit the media and led the council to set up its own Information Governance Council (IGC) to make the governance of data and information sharing everybody’s business.

The council’s aspiration to demonstrate best practice in information management and security policy will be judged on the every day actions of staff. So it’s down to all of us to make sure we are up to speed on the council’s policies and agreements and to feed back where we might experience difficulties in implementing them in our day to day work.

Look out in the coming weeks for an e-learning tool on information governance which all staff will be expected to complete, and in the meantime check out the new section on the intranet dedicated to the work of the IGC.

The new information governance framework includes guidance on all aspects of the safe keeping and appropriate sharing of information, whether verbal, paper based or electronic, to comply with the Freedom of Information Act, the Data Protection Act, CCTV, the Transparency Agenda and any other aspect of the council’s work.

The next edition of the council’s Info First newsletter, the sister publication to First Team, will be out in March with more news on this topic, including news on the council’s recent internal data protection compliance audit and details of Barnet’s new FOI system.

Courtney Davis, who is heading up the Information Management Strategy Implementation project, said: 

“We aim to raise the profile of the vitally important business of good governance of the council’s information. It’s absolutely essential that all our staff take data sharing and data protection seriously, especially as we enter into a period of real and sustained organisational transformation.
I urge all staff to log on to the intranet when our e-learning tool is released and make sure they are properly skilled up to deliver the policies.”

Now the question Mr Mustard asks is what was there in the above message which couldn't be shared with council tax payers and he can't see anything that should be secret. That makes him think therefore that the council should put messages to staff on the internet (i.e. publicly) and not on the intranet (where they may become public anyway).

Mr Mustard was thinking about information when he looked for a pretty graphic to put at the top of the page. The website it was from is here. It happens to be an article in the Guardian about

Top paid civil servants and quango chiefs: See who gets the most

If you click the "get the data" link at the top of the page on the Guardian website you can see the pay rates of senior civil servants and quango chiefs. Nick Walkley has been added to the below list by Mr Mustard. Please bear in mind that some of the lowest paid positions could be part time. It tells you on the Guardian website if you download all the data.

It looks like non-stick is more than adequately paid.

Yours frugally

Mr Mustard


  1. These exclude pension payments. don't they?

  2. Dear Baarnett. These amounts are sure to exclude pension contributions except and unless any of these people turn out to be "Town Hall Tax Dodgers" in which case the amount quoted should be inclusive.

    Non-stick earns more than the DPP. Madness.
