Preparing Items for Council/Senate/UEB/Their Sub-Committees and Groups - Introduction

The purpose of this section is to: 

  • Improve the information provided to Council/Senate/UEB/Their Sub-Committees and Groups, sponsors and authors of papers to help ensure consistency and quality in what is presented, and help clarify what is to be reported, and why
  • Avoid default escalation to a senior body to take a decision in the interest of improved agility and streamlined decision-making.  

In the annexes of the original paper presented to UEB (UEB.19-20.251 UEB Governance Arrangements Phase 1 (PDF , 512kb)) is the taxonomy which provides working definitions of document types and general guidance on which formal bodies are responsible for consideration and approval of such items. This  is intended to sit above the more detailed, revised University Scheme of Delegated Approvals as a set of principles.
