Dear Office for Students,

Dear George,

Freedom of Information request : S2018/5591

I am writing to request clarification on your recent request for information. Within your original request, you asked:

1. I would like to know the amount in pounds sterling given by the OfS to institutions under HEFCE funding arrangements as part of transitional regulations since the OfS's inception to date (16 November 2016).
2. I would like to know which institutions have been given funding under HEFCE rules as part of transitional regulations since the OfS's inception to date (16 November 2016).

HEFCE funding arrangements as part of transitional regulations relates to a number of HEFCE functions being carried over until the end of 2018/19 as we transition to the OfS. As your request relates to wording included in recent news articles regarding the issuing of a short term loan to a provider, I am wondering if you are actually wishing to know the following information:

1. The amount in pounds sterling issued as a short term loan by the OfS to institutions since the OfS's inception to date (16 November 2016).
2. Which institutions have received short term loans since the OfS's inception to date (16 November 2016).

If we do not receive a response from you confirming the request amendment, we will continue to process your original request for information relating to HEFCE funding arrangements as part of transitional regulations.

Best wishes,
