UTS: Policy

Council approved the UTS Governance Instruments Policy in April 2014. The Policy must be used in the development and review of all Policies, Vice-Chancellor's Directives and other governance instruments.

All current UTS governance instruments are required to be published on this site, which functions as the authorised electronic repository. Categories of UTS governance instruments are Standing Delegations of Authority, Frameworks, Policies, Vice-Chancellor's Directives, Codes and Charters and University-level Procedures.

All governance instruments published on this site are current and enforceable. Instruments that are scheduled for review and/or under review are also current and enforceable until such time as they are replaced, updated or rescinded.

Where guidelines, principles, procedures, standards and/or codes are approved by Council or Academic Board, they will continue to be published on this site. Procedural and guideline documentation that relates to specific unit or faculty areas of activity, such as facilities management, is published by the relevant area on their local site.
