The request was successful.

Dear Glasgow Caledonian University,

Are any of your senior Academic or Professional Services staff receiving cash in lieu of USS pension contributions as part of their remuneration packages?

I do not wish to identify any individuals by name or role but I would like a breakdown of opt-out numbers by school or service together with an indication of whether the beneficiary is faculty or professional services staff.

Yours faithfully,
