Dear University of Wolverhampton,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would like to know:

1. The subsidies provided by the university, to external bus companies operating university bus routes, for the last 5 complete academic years (2014/15 to 2018/19), broken down by the following where possible:
o Student travel
o University staff travel
o Any other subsidy provided
If the breakdown is not possible, a single subsidy figure for each academic year would be acceptable.

2. The expenditure on, and income from, any university provided bus services, including shuttle buses, for the last 5 complete academic years (2014/15 to 2018/19), broken down by the following where possible:
o Student travel
o University staff travel
o Bus staff salary
o Equipment costs, covering vehicles and facilities
o Any other operating costs
If the breakdown is not possible, a single expenditure and single income figure for each academic year would be acceptable.

3. The number of complaints received by the university regarding university bus services, for the last 5 complete academic years (2014/15 to 2018/19).

If the data is collected in financial years, rather than academic years, please do provide the information in this format, for the last 5 financial years (including 2018-19 if possible), making it clear which format has been used.

Yours faithfully,

Adam Hodgson

Good Morning Mr Hodgson,

 

Re: FOI-67-20

 

I write this email further to previous correspondence concerning the
above-referenced requested received by the University of Wolverhampton on
16 March 2020, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(Act).  

 

An original date to comply with your request was set for 13 April 2020 and
this was advised in correspondence dated 16 March 2020. In accordance with
the Act the University has 20 working days, to deal with your request for
information upon receipt.

 

Given the current circumstances that the UK finds itself in relating to
the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the University along with many other
Universities, is required to divert resources away from our usual
compliance procedures and follow the Government advice, with many staff
now working from home.

 

This may mean, the response to your request will be potentially delayed
and compliance with the original response date may not be possible, as
access to the necessary online services may be limited. Please be mindful
that the University will try to the best of its ability to provide the
requested information to you as soon as possible.

 

The current situation has been acknowledged by the ICO in recent guidance
given to Information Governance practitioners. The ICO has provided that
they understand that in the current circumstances organisations might
divert resources both of a financial and physical nature away from its
usual compliance or Information Governance work.

 

Although the statutory deadline for compliance with your request remains,
they understand that requester’s (such as yourself) may experience
understandable delays during these extraordinary times.

 

If you have any concerns regarding the contents of this email, please feel
free to contact us to discuss the matter further.

 

Kind regards
