Connected parties' job appraisals

Request

I would be grateful if you could let me know MP's staff who are family members have their jobs appraised

As I have not found the job spec for a senior researcher for an MP I don’t know how their performance is monitored or remunerated fairly, I would be grateful if you could let me know.  Clearly it cant be done by a family member as this would be a conflict of interest?


Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you request.

An overview of typical roles and duties carried out by MPs’ staff are published on our website, and can be found via the following address: http://parliamentarystandards.org.uk/Job%20Description/Documents/MP%20staff%20JDs%20spreadsheet.pdf

Performance management of MPs’ staff is a matter for each MP, and IPSA does not therefore hold any of this information.
