Dear university data officer,

I would like to make an FOI request for the following information:

* Where academics in your computing/computer science department have disclosed details of work they have done with external private companies alongside, or during a break from, their work at your university, whether on a full time or part time basis, on a permanent or temporary contract or on a consultancy basis. I'd like the information on which academics have worked for which companies, and any available/disclosable information on payment for and duration of the work.

* Where your computing/computer science department, or individual academics or research groups within the department, have received grants or funding from external private companies or individuals. I'd like the information on who provided the funding, to whom, and when.

I am interested in as much information as is available from the beginning of 2013 to today.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Jones
