Parramatta-Westmead Program Control Board

In our 2016–20 Strategic Plan, we indicated that we would be investing in and expanding our footprint at Westmead. Building on this through our Western Sydney Strategy, we have committed to developing an expanded presence in the Parramatta/Westmead area, specifically establishing a second major campus.

The Program Control Board – Parramatta/Westmead

  • Will provide guidance, direction and oversight to the continued design and implementation of the University of Sydney Parramatta/Westmead Campus.
  • The design and implementation will be executed through key streams of work under the program.
  • The PCB will be responsible for overseeing the approach, scope, progress, budget, benefits realisation, risks and issues and timelines
  • The PCB will also be responsible for providing recommendations and advice to the University Executive in relation to key decisions for the new venture.
