Dear Mr McCaree

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

Further to our acknowledgement we are writing to seek some clarification in order to provide the information you have asked for. Please could you advise with regard to the following:

- What was the total expenditure budget of the University’s Careers Services (excluding operational costs such as salaries)?
Would you like us to also exclude internal recharges such as Estates costs and internal catering costs that we incur when running events?

- How many private ltd companies did the University’s Careers Service do business with?
Is this purely the number of companies that we purchase goods and services from or does this need to include the number of companies who attend our events and advertise on our jobs portal?

- Approximately how much did the University’s Careers Services spent on acquiring products and services from third-party private companies?
Should we include the use of consultants in this spend or is this asking purely about the spend on goods and services such as booklets, leaflets, handouts, training courses, travel, IT equipment, software etc?

- How much did the University’s Careers Services spend on careers literature (booklets, leaflets, handouts, etc.) provided by Graduate Prospects ltd?
No further queries to raise.

Unfortunately it will not be possible to comply with your request without this additional information.

We will respond to your request within twenty working days from the date of receiving the clarification requested.

Should you have any queries with regard to this e-mail please do not hesitate to contact me.
