In his annual speech on 1 October 2018, the Vice-Chancellor stressed the need for a University which is "defined by its purpose, not by its processes".  We want our processes across all areas of professional services, including Finance and HR, to be as efficient and effective as possible. Our aim is to establish consistent principles which enable teams to use their local knowledge and expertise to determine the best solution for their needs.


We provide training on process improvement. This includes backfilling positions to give staff the space they need to think about how to improve their processes and to experiment with ideas. We focus on end to end processes, not just those that are local or sit within the UAS (University Administration Service). We operate within a common framework which can be adapted to incorporate local variations.

Our ultimate aim is to faciliate the development of processes that are simple, effective and fit for purpose.
