Preparing Items for UEB - Introduction

The purpose of this section is to: 

  • Improve the information provided to the Board, sponsors and authors of papers to help ensure consistency and quality in what is presented to the Board, 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 the Board (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 requires further work, development and consultation, but is intended to sit above a more detailed, revised University scheme of delegation as a set of principles.
