University Committees

Committee Report Template

Papers prepared for committee consideration should be concise and not normally exceed 6 sides. Please use the University’s standard committee paper template which is available below. Brief appendices may be used to provide further detail or evidence where necessary.

Report Template - All Papers

Here is the standard committee paper template.

Guidance for authors is available here and guidance for formatting is available here.

Business Cases

There are separate templates for Outline Business Case and Full Business Case which will be brought forward for consideration and approval by Operations Board, UEC, Finance Committee, Senate and Council.

The flowchart sets out the various steps and sequencing in the approval process for business cases for all major projects and all other capital expenditure projects.

Please use a new template for each paper as overwriting can cause corruption and formatting issues.
