Dear Mr Kelvin, 
 
Re: Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 – Request for Information 
 
Thank you for your email which was received by the University on 28 September 2011 timed 
09:57 hours, requesting the following information: 
 
“A recent request 'Annual Cost of MyCampus' returned on the 27th of September stated 
that the cost of SLP Support and Development Team is £418,000 for the next academic 
year (or is this now plan/session/program)? 
 
The university's own SLP page lists 51 staff working on this project. There is of course 
an additional number of other staff (IT and Registry) also working on the SLP 'off 
balance sheet'. Included on the official list are 27 external consultants whose wage bill 
has never been disclosed by the university. 
 
My question is - to what does the £418,000 figure refer to? Please add as much detail as 
you have access to and please state any exclusions in your calculation to the 
response.” 

 
University’s Response 
 
For information, our response to this request is based on the assumption that the previous 
request to which you refer was request reference F0166064, as detailed at the following link: 
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/annual_cost_of_mycampus#incoming-215307 
 
The figure of £418,000 refers to the Student Lifecycle Support and Development Team 
established with effect from 1/10/2011 and is the expected cost for the financial year 2011/12. 
The team comprises functional and administration support staff as detailed in our response to 
request number F0155714.  Please see the following link for further details:
