MyCampus Review

David Black made this Freedom of Information request to University of Glasgow

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Glasgow,

MyCampus Lessons Learned Review’s findings and recommendations are most disappointing. The panel’s assessment of the root of the problem is simply wrong. A group of people who did not have the expertise or the knowledge required for the implementation of a student system bought the wrong software platform and then shoved it down our throats.

The most amusing aspect of this report is the assumption that the ones that got us into this mess can now fix it. So I would like to ask you the following questions:

1. Frank Coton, the convenor of the review panel, is a member of the SLP board. The SLP board is ultimately responsible for the mess that we are in. Why didn’t the University choose a fresh face to convene the review panel?

2. Did the panel consider recommending the replacement of the SLP board convenor, the SLP directors and others responsible for the failure of this project? If not, why not?

Yours faithfully,

David Black
