Delegations of authority

The Delegations Framework provides a key mechanism for accountability and responsibility in decision-making within the University. It is designed to reflect the University’s organisational structure and provide a mechanism to assign authorities originating from legislation, policy and/or procedures of the University.

The University maintains a continuous review process for the Delegations Framework. In 2019, the University undertook a major review to identify and update authorities in the framework to reflect the ANU Council Charter, which lists matters Council has reserved for its own decision-making. Work was also undertaken to review and respond to organisational restructuring, and policy and legislative amendments.
