Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Brunel University,

I am writing you for a Request of information, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) on the following topics: “From which government authorities, NGO or Private companies do universities receive funding’ for research?”, a research based on information of public interest, for journalism purposes.
Can you provide information to the following questions?
1) What is the total amount that the university received in funds for research, industrial consultancy fees and/or funded researches from government, NGO or private companies in the last five financial years (from 2013 till 2017)? The information should be broken down by organization or company name, year per year (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), in a CSV format, if possible.
2) A portfolio statement for the funds the university has investments in. If you do not have a copy of it, can you provide a list of funds and corresponding management companies? Details should be broken down year by year, for the last financial years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), provided in a CSV format, if possible.
3) Can you provide details of research projects (such as executive summary and details of reports’ publication, university department and researchers’ names) of projects whose funds exceed £50,000, in the same period of time (2013-2017)?

Yours faithfully,

Santino Pani

Dear Mrs Liddell,

On questions 1 and 2 I am referring to all funds, non-only those exceeding £50,000.
So, I am asking the data of any funds, or any fees your university collects for researches by public or private organizations.

It is only on Q3 that I ask for further information, to provide details of projects, including researchers’ names, title, summary and any publication of reports, if the funds exceed £50,000.

Yours sincerely,

Santino Pani

Dear Mrs Liddell,

To be more clear, the data I am requesting on Question 1 is about all funds you receive, not it's summary (which I suppose you would provide it anyway). I am more interested in which organization your university receive the funds, and how much, and it should be splitted by each financial year, from 2013 to 2017.

Yours sincerely,

Santino Pani

Mr Pani,

I apologise for the confusion over the question numbers.

It is for question 3 that I am asking if you want the information for the *contracts placed* for over £50,000, or the *sums invoiced* (in relation to research) for over £50,000.

Thank you,

Dear Mrs Liddell,

On question 3 I am asking to have more details of projects whose funds exceed £50,000. This would include:
The public organization or private company whose projects are funded, Project title, Executive Summary, Full Reports published of the project, and Researchers names.
The names of those projects' funding organizations or companies, of course, should appear also on Q1 or Q2. If their funds exceed £50,000, I am asking to provide the details mentioned above.
These data can be in a PDF format, or eventually just their links, if reports are published online.

Thank you,

Santino Pani

Dear Mrs Liddell,

Thank you very much for your response. I am still in doubt about the question 1, regarding the consultancy fees, and companies who requested them, as it doesn’t seem they have been included in the spreadsheet. Can you clarify this?
Further, on question 2 you declared that the University has only cash reserve in UK banks; can I have a list of those reserves, their amount, and the bank’s names?
The other spreadsheet’s data’s are very exhaustive; thank you for that.

I await to receive a response from you about those questions 1 and 2, before closing the request.

Yours sincerely,

Santino Pani
