Dear Georgia

Further to your enquiry under Freedom of Information below, please can you clarify the following:

How you wish us to answer question 1,2, 6 and 7 as you are requiring information for 2016-17 financial year and during this period the University has had two Vice-Chancellors in post. Should we just be reporting on our current VC, on the previous VC or on both?

Also, as neither VC has worked the whole financial year, do you require their actual earnings in 2016/17 or their FTE (full time equivalent) earnings?

Kind regards
Clare O'Driscoll
