FOI Requests, Student Loans Company Limited

Dear Martin Murray
Thank you for your email dated 9th August 2021.
Your request is being considered under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (“FOIA”).
Your request has been allocated reference number 123-21.
We will respond to you under the terms of the FOIA and within 20 working
days.
We will contact you further for clarification of your request if this is
considered necessary.   However, at this time we note that this request is
very similar to the other request you submitted earlier on 9th August 2021
(referring to "loans" rather than "student loan services").  We would be
grateful if you intended to submit two similar requests and a response is
expected in response to both, or whether only one of your requests
requires a response.
Yours sincerely

following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“FOIA”):

Response

There is no contract between Student Loans Company Limited (“SLC”) with
the UK Government to provide student loans to UK residents.  SLC is an
Executive Non-Departmental Public Body and we are delegated certain
statutory functions by the Secretary of State for Education and the
Devolved Administrations.  Our relationship with the Department for
Education and Devolved Administrations is not contractual in nature.

right to ask for an internal review.

Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date
of receipt of the response to your original request and should be

Limited, 100 Bothwell Street, Glasgow, G2 7JD, or by email:
[SLC request email].  Please remember to quote the reference number
above in any future communications.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
