As members of the University of Leeds community, we are concerned about the current IT reorganisation. We believe that:

  • the loss of experienced IT staff and management focus on the reorganisation is contributing to problems with IT services
  • research, teaching and administrative needs should drive IT planning, not cost-cutting
  • there should be consultation with staff at all levels about IT plans
  • experienced and skilled IT staff are extremely valuable to the university and should be supported and retained
  • there should be no compulsory/forced redundancies and no downgrading of IT staff or roles as a result of the reorganisation
  • there should be no further outsourcing of IT services and a review of those that are currently outsourced
  • the spend on consultants is a drain on the budget
