Dear University of Surrey,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I’d like to make a request regarding the careers support services available at your university.

If possible, I’d like to receive data specific to the 2018/2019 academic year.

Specifically, I’d like to request data on the student careers services spend. (Excluding operational costs.)

This could fall under career support or careers programmes.

If this includes a combined group of departments, could you please specify each department and their individual spend?

If I could please receive the data in a spreadsheet format, that would be fantastic. Feel free to get in touch if you require any clarification from myself.

Yours faithfully,

Russ Hunter

Good Morning Russ

I passed your request onto the finance department, and they have asked if you could please provide some clarification around what costs you would like included in your response. You asked us to exclude operational costs, the finance department feel that these are costs which they would be expected to include, i.e The cost of staff working in the careers service and the materials they buy / other costs they incur in running the service.

So we can proceed, please could you provide some clarification as to exactly what cost you would like included. I will put your request on hold until 04/02/2020, if I haven’t heard back from you by then I shall consider it as closed.

Kind regards

Please can you ask the requestor to clarify what costs we should include. The operational costs, which we’re asked to exclude, are the very costs I would expect us to include i.e. The cost of staff working in the careers service and the materials they buy / other costs they incur in running the service.

Hi,

Apologies for the inconvenience, but would it be possible to disregard the 'operational costs' aspect of my previous request, and instead just receive the overall careers spend for the university?

Yours sincerely,

Russ Hunter
