Dear Bath Spa University,
I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.
I would like to know the yearly salary of the vice provost/s and how much that has increased since 2012, year-to-year.
I would be interested in any information held by your organization regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to specify files or documents and that it is the institution’s responsibility to provide the information I require. If you need further clarification, please contact me by email.
I would like to receive the information electronically.
If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify this by reference to specific exemptions of the Act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.
I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing/by email that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as outlined by the statute.
Dear Bath Spa University,
I made an application for information recently. The law states that you must respond within 20 working days. You have not. Please reply immediately.
Dear Mr Roberts,
Thank you for your email and request for information, please accept my
sincere apologies for the delay.
In considering the response to your query we have identified that in order
to answer your request the University would be disclosing information
likely to lead to the identification of individuals and therefore the
disclosure of information subject to confidentiality. This information
is therefore also exempt from disclosure under Section 40 (2) of the
Freedom of Information Act, which states that "any information to which a
request for information relates is also exempt information if - (a) it
constitutes personal data."
However, I can confirm that of the senior staff at the University, those
for whom remuneration exceeds the established amount subject for release
are recorded in an anonymous format in the University's annual financial
statement, which you can find here. Please note the information is
available as far back as academic year 2011/12. You can also find
details of the University's governance and management structure on our
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original email and should be addressed to: Freedom of Information Officer,
Bath Spa University, Newton Park, Newton St Loe, Bath, BA2 9BN or by email
to [Bath Spa University request email].
