CY2 and the UK Higher Education Community

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Glasgow,

Please note that this FOI request is being sent to the following UK Universities:

 

University of Cambridge

University of Glasgow

Liverpool John Moores University

University of Manchester

 

This is because they are known UK customers of CY2.

 

The FOI is as follows:

 

1)What has been the total amount spent on engaging CY2 up until the receipt of this FOI.

2)What is the potential future spending plan put in place for future CY2 engagements.

3)Have past, present and future engagement been through your procurment processes.

4)What projects have CY2 brought onto your site, and what projects have been taken off site by CY2.

5)If projects have been taken off what arrangements have taken place to protect your intellectual property. 

6)Where projects have been brought onto your site what checks have been taken to ensure you are not infringing the intellectual property of others.

7) If project work has taken place on site by CY2 has an analysis been performed to see that on site development by University staff would have been cheaper or more expensive than engaging CY2.

8)Has work been suggested by CY2 that does not currently exist.

9)Please provide all email communications between your establishment and CY2 (@cy2.nl) 

10)Please provide Minutes of any of your Peoplesoft Campus Solutions Project Board type meetings which reference CY2 or work undertaken by CY2

11)What levels of access does CY2 have to your production data/software, either in production itself or copies of production

Yours faithfully,

John Thompson

Dear FOI Office,

thank you very much for your reply.

I would like to point out that there are huge gaps in the emails that you have provided.

For example, there are no mention of engaging Cy2 for any particular purpose , nor about how they are being managed.

There are a large number of emails relating to problems with the CY2 work but no emails from management showing concerns about that.

With the gaps that are apparent from the emails provided, I think it would be wise to look at all the emails that can be accesses not just the ones that are voluntarily surrendered.

I also notice that mention is made about procurment processes being followed from recent engagements, but what about all those past engagements?

You may be aware this FOI also went to John Moore's university.

They provided a Monterey value to their CY2 engagement (although they no longer use their services).

What prevented Glasgow doing the same?

Yours sincerely,

John Thompson
