Freedom of Information, University of St Andrews

Dear Mr Innes,

I refer to your request for information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) and my subsequent acknowledgement on 28 July, 2017. To allow us to comply and assist in the processing of your request, I would be grateful if you could clarify a few points please:

1. You have asked to be supplied with data from 2012 to date. This can be interpreted in a number of ways, can you specify which of the following options best meets your requirements:
- from 1 January 2012
- from 1 January 2013
- Financial year 2012/13 onwards
- Financial year 2011/12 onwards

2. Can you specify the details you are seeking.

3. Can you define what you mean by your use of the term 'financial contributions'?

This request for additional information is made under Section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Please note that under Section 10(1)(b) of the Act, the University has 20 working days after receipt of the additional information by the University in which to comply with your request.

As part of our advice and assistance, my initial assessment of your enquiry is that your request is very wide-ranging i.e. encompassing all "University staff, representatives and affiliated groups". The University operates in a devolved manner consisting of 20 academic schools and 20 service units. To search our records to establish if any information of relevance is held is therefore going to be quite extensive and possibly lead to your request being refused on the grounds of excessive cost under section 12 of the FOISA. With this in mind, you may wish to consider if the scope of your enquiry can be narrowed any? For example, reduce the reporting period; specify a particular section of the university of most interest; and/or predominantly focus on centrally held records maintained by Finance and our Development office.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

June
