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 20 October 2011 timed
23:58 hours, requesting the following information:
How was the original budget for the Student Lifecycle Programme meant to have been
spent? It is confusing to work this out. I understand that an additional £900,000 was
requested at some point in the past couple of years for the project, but yet the
University states that it is under budget.
a) Please supply me with the original Costs from the Business Plan submitted to the
Senior Management Group for approval to start up the SLP. This must have provided
information about how and importantly when this money was to be spent.
b) Please supply me with the date when the Business Plan was mailed to the Senior
c) Please supply the approval date of the Business Plan.
d) Please also provide who drew up the Costs within the Business Plan.
