Dear Mark,

 

Once again thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

You have asked:

 

•What was the total expenditure budget of the University’s Careers
Services (excluding operational costs such as salaries)?

•How many private ltd companies did the University’s Careers Service do
business with?

•Approximately how much did the University’s Careers Services spent on
acquiring products and services from third-party private companies?

•How much did the University’s Careers Services spend on careers
literature (booklets, leaflets, handouts, etc.) provided by Graduate
Prospects ltd?

 

Please could you kindly provide further clarification on the following:

 

1)    What is meant by ‘expenditure budget’? Would it be reasonable to
presume, in the context of the wider questions posed, that this is the
available budget with which the service buys in products and services from
third-party private companies?

2)    What is meant by 'do business with'? The Careers Service works
extensively with organisations (employers) delivering a range of Employer
Services relating to events, internships, placements etc. Would these
interactions be included, or would it be just in relation to products and
services purchased from third-party private companies?

We look forward to hearing from you. Until we do so, your request will be
placed on hold.

 

With thanks and best wishes,
