Campus Solutions - Additional University Employees

David Pearson made this Freedom of Information request to University of Glasgow

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear University of Glasgow,

The minutes of the University Court meeting of 23 June 2010 says:

“Court noted a progress report from the Project Board managing the
implementation of Campus Solutions (the 'Student Lifecycle
Project'). The report had been considered on 17 May by the Senior
Management Group, which had accepted its recommendations. In recent
weeks, Oracle UK Consulting had proposed revised terms to its
service agreement with the University, through which it provided
consultancy support for the implementation of Campus Solutions.
These had not been acceptable to the University and had led to
Oracle terminating the service contract. Following from this, the
University would now employ contracting staff directly to manage
this implementation through to completion. There had been an
increase in the estimated cost of implementing Campus Solutions,
from £13.241M to £14.1M. This related to the need to develop
customisations in order to compensate for current gaps in the
functionality of Campus Solutions; and an extended period of
backfill to allow the Project Team to continue to commit fully to
this project over a longer period than originally planned.”

In relation to this can you please tell me:

How many new staff were taken on by the university as a result of this decision?

How many were male and how many were female?

What is the total combined salary of the new staff taken on?

How many were taken on in open ended contracts?

How many were taken on in fixed term contracts?

Yours faithfully,

David Pearson
