The Planning Process

The Planning and Resource Allocation Process provides a forum for the detailed discussion of academic plans and opportunities alongside pro-active planning for the professional services needed to support the University.

The process is intended to focus on a medium term horizon, looking at projections for three years, while agreeing the actual detailed budget and local annual operating plans for the next academic year.

To support the process, the Planning Support Unit prepares a management information pack on key academic, financial and non-financial indicators for each academic department, faculty and non-academic area in advance of scheduled meetings.
