Dear University of Sunderland,

Under the Freedom Of Information Act, I would like to request
details of the contract/tender for student/staff catering at all
catering facilities within the University which were once provided
by University owned in-house caters. I would like any
documents/correspondence relating to the procurement of the tender
to the winning contractor Aramark.

I would like to see any email communications or official meeting
documents (agenda's/minutes) relating to this tender process.

If possible, I would like to receive a copy of:
- current spend on catering
- spend on catering when catering service was provided in house.
- any student/staff feedback received during Aramark's tenure or
previous to this transition from in-house catering.
- any student or staff feedback into why a new catering company was
required

Thanks for your time, and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

C. Hunter.
