Financial Regulations

The University's Financial Regulations set out at a high level how the University is structured and how it operates its finances e.g. pay expenditure through to treasury management. Some of the items are legislative, others represent best practice.

The regulations set out the principles by which the University will operate whilst the more detailed processes and procedures put them into effect.


Scheme of Financial Delegation

The Scheme of Financial Delegation shows how authority for financial decisions is devolved from Council to the Vice-Chancellor and on to Budget Officers and others. The document can be found here.
