As the current situation evolves, UTS is committed to providing support and flexibility to our staff and students to help manage the impacts of COVID-19.
While the university’s delegations continue to apply, temporary adjustments to specific provisions may be required.
For more information and support in relation to delegations applicability please contact the UTS Governance team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further information on the UTS response to COVID-19 and frequently asked questions is available on the UTS Coronavirus advice page.
Delegations are the assignment of authority to undertake specific tasks. At UTS, delegations include the key decision-making authorities for the financial, human resources, administrative, academic, governance and research functions of the university.
How delegations are made
- any member or committee of Council, or
- any authority or officer of the university, or
- any other person or body prescribed by the UTS By-law.
Section 17 also provides that Council can resolve that a delegation to the Vice-Chancellor may be subdelegated.
The Delegations Schedule uses bands to allocate positions to the delegations. To view the positions within each of the bands, see Schedule G2 — Strategic Delegations.
As part of a broader program to streamline policies and empower staff, the Delegations are undergoing a significant review, with the second phase taking effect on 31 May 2019.
