  • SUSU Funding issues
    • we have the funding round 1 monies
    • only paid £50 for the two opendays
    • Schmendrick went to investigate, and this is his carefully worded statement of events:
Originally, each society should have been paid £50 per weekend. 
This is the amount the University has paid SUSU.

We considered the original email to be ambiguous and asked for 
clarification as to whether the £50 was per weekend or per day.

On the 1st April a member of SUSU staff emailed back and said 
very clearly and unambiguously that it was £50 per day.

We only did one weekend (2 days), and SUSU consequently paid 
us only £50, as per the original plan. We, naturally, were 
expecting £100, having done two days.

SUSU is investigating. The member of staff I spoke to was unsure 
as to what could be done, but will email me when they know more.

My recommendation is to be patient and wait until we hear back. 
If we don't like the response, then it would be appropriate for 
us to approach either the Student Groups Officer, or a 
Sabbatical Officer. It would be inappropriate for a student to
get into an argument directly with SUSU staff, as per the SUSU
Staff-Student Partnership Agreement.
