    Contract Transparency

    Current
      There are a lot of issues at Staffs that, at least somewhere along the line, stem from or are exacerbated by the university not being open about contracts. A few examples: - Campus vending machines, as per last year's Better Staffs - Campus washing machines, as per last year's Better Staffs - Staff telling students they must use OneDrive and other Microsoft software because the Google Suite is "not GDPR-compliant" or insecure, which students do not believe - they know there's a contract with Microsoft, but the terms not being public makes this instruction seem highly suspicious. If students are to be expected to abide by the terms of a contract with a third-party company like Circuit or Microsoft, the university ought to at least be up-front about it. Where possible, Staffs Uni should be open and transparent about contracts with third-parties - at the very least the terms they expect students to abide by.
