'World Changers Welcome' Marketing Campaign (2016/2017)

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University of Glasgow,

I am seeking information regarding the 'World Changers Welcome' marketing campaign, specifically the A4-sized 'Congratulations on receiving an offer from Glasgow!' piece of card that contained a total of eight cut-out faces (four on each side), and encouraged recipients to 'Pick One', 'Snap Away' and 'Share' (henceforth "promotional card") . This promotional card was received in late 2016 to mid 2017 by certain Undergraduate applicants to the University of Glasgow, applying to join in the Academic Year 2017/2018.

The specific information I am requesting is as follows:
1.) The number of physical copies of this promotional card that were distributed to students through the postal services in the period from September 2016 to June 2017.
2.) The total cost of (a) designing, (b) printing and (c) distributing through the postal services of all copies of the promotional card that were physically distributed in the period from September 2016 to June 2017, broken down into the above categories (designing, printing and distributing).

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Ferguson

Dear Mr Ferguson,

In order to take forward your email, received 23 January 2018 timed 17:26 hours, as a valid FOI request, please note the following advice from the Scottish Information Commissioner's website:

"The Act says that a request must include the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence. The Commissioner has confirmed that an e-mail address is sufficient when you are asking for information. However, if you send your request by email, you must give your name in the body of the email to fulfil the requirement that the name of the applicant is given. Even if your name appears in your email address (e.g. [email address]) you must add your name to the text of your request, so that it is clear who the email is from.
You must give your real name, as the public authority does not have to answer your request if you have used a false name or pseudonym. The Commissioner will not be able to carry out an investigation if he finds out that you have used a false name.

If you have particular reasons for not wanting to reveal your identity to the public authority, you should ask a friend or family member to make the request for information."

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI Office, University of Glasgow,

I refer to the document 'Recognising a request made under the Freedom of Information Act (Section 8)', published by the Information Commissioner's Office, published online at: https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio... .

In particular, the section entitled 'The definition of a ‘real name'' specifically states that:
"A requester named Robert Jones could call themselves 'Rob Jones', 'Bobby Jones', 'R Jones', 'Bob Jones' or 'Mr Jones'."

Since I provided my real name, as specified in a format permitted by the Information Commissioner's Office ("Mr Ferguson"), in the body of the email detailing my request I believe my request to be valid and no further information is required in order for my request to be processed.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Ferguson
