Planning & Governance

Welcome to the Planning and Governance Department webpages

Housed within this service department are four teams; Planning, Governance, Reporting and Data Analysis, Project Management & Change Unit.

At Executive, Institute and Department level, Planning and Governance supports the development and implementation of planning activities and strategy, including the delivery of the University's common Risk Management framework.




The Planning team produces management information to support strategic planning and manages returns to HEFCW.

Management Information
