Dear University of Bath,

Could you please provide me with the following information regarding the University’s Careers Services and its business relationships with private ltd companies?

For the academic years 2016/17 OR 2017/18:

• What was the total expenditure budget of the University’s Careers Services (excluding operational costs such as salaries)?
• How many private ltd companies did the University’s Careers Service do business with?
• Approximately how much did the University’s Careers Services spent on acquiring products and services from third-party private companies?
• How much did the University’s Careers Services spend on careers literature (booklets, leaflets, handouts, etc.) provided by Graduate Prospects ltd?

Many thanks!

Yours faithfully,

Mark McCaree

Mr McCaree, thank you for your email.

Please can you clarify your request as follows:

1/ I assume by 2016/17 OR 2017/18, you mean 2017/18 if this is available, 2016/17 if not. Is this correct?

2/ When you say "total expenditure budget" what are you asking for - total expenditure or the budget?

Please advise so that we can begin processing your request.

Mr McCaree, further clarification is needed I am afraid.

Please can you define what you mean by "do business with"? Does this only include any company with whom we have had a direct financial relationship, of one party purchasing goods or services from the other, or it broader?

On the face of it, all or almost all costs would be operational in that they contribute to the running of our careers service. Can you clarify what you would regard as non-operational? If you just wish us to disregard staff salaries, please can you say so?

Regards, John

Dear John Evans,

Thank you for getting back to me.

"Please can you define what you mean by "do business with"? " - I was referring to the number of private companies from whom the University's Careers Services purchased their products and services (for example, literature, computer software, etc).

Regarding operation costs, I was referring to the total budget that had been assigned specifically for purchasing products and services only, not the total budget of the Careers Service (which includes staff salaries and other operational costs).

Sorry for the misunderstanding and I hope that it is clear now?

Yours sincerely,

Mark McCaree

John Evans, University of Bath

Thanks - that certainly helps on those two points.

I had previously also asked you about the year you were seeking data for and we are able to provide a response for 2017/18, which we will do within the statutory timeframe for Freedom of Information requests.
