Chair Appointments Committee

AGENDA ITEMS – Submitting items


Step 1 – Inform the Committee Officer of the item for CAC

Please EMAIL to both and the information below for each item that needs to be included in the agenda for the next meeting of the Chair Appointments Committee (CAC), by the deadline in the CAC meeting schedule:

  • the FULL TITLE of the Selection Committee report or the item.
  • the DATE of the Selection Committee meeting if appropriate.
  • the NAME of the Chair of the Selection Committee or senior officer who will attend the CAC meeting to present the report.

Step 2 – Send the report to John Dixon for checking

You will need to arrange for John Dixon, Executive Director, Office of the Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, to check your report.

Step 3 – Submit the agenda item

There are three options depending on the report:


3.1 To the Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor:
Some reports need to go to the Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor for signing off as per University policy - see details

When signed it is then forwarded
— to David Bradbury / Lis Bergmann for the CAC agenda; or
— to the Vice-Chancellor (for signing)
as appropriate.

OR

3.2 To the Vice-Chancellor:
Some reports need to go to the Vice-Chancellor for signing off as per University policy, noting that some will first need to be signed off by the Provost - details

The full report needs to be delivered to the Vice-Chancellor in time for it to be signed off by him and sent to David Bradbury / Lis Bergmann for distribution as per the agenda deadlines.

When signed it is then forwarded by the Vice-Chancellor’s office to David Bradbury / Lis Bergmann for the CAC agenda.

OR


3.3 To David Bradbury / Lis Bergmann:
Some reports do not need to be signed off by the Provost or the Vice-Chancellor – these need to be emailed as one PDF to David Bradbury / Lis Bergmann, as per the agenda deadlines - details

Step 4 – Late items

If a selection or academic titles committee meets before the agenda is distributed for the next CAC meeting (see agenda deadlines), then the report needs to go to that meeting.

If it cannot meet this deadline:

  • it can be considered by circulation – if the recommendation is unanimous and only with the Vice-Chancellor's approval, or
  • it can go to the following CAC meeting.
