Planning and Analysis
The Planning and Analysis group is responsible for integrated enrolment and load management and management of the fee setting process.
In managing the fee setting processes, this team is responsible for ensuring that fees are consistent with the University’s overall strategic and financial objectives, and that fees are properly approved and compliant with legislation.
The Fees section of the PIO web site provides a resource to faculties and includes policies, guidelines, templates and other information for the professional management of the courses and fees process. (Please note: the Fees section of this site is currently being updated and will be available in the next few weeks links on this page)
In consultation with the faculties, the Planning and Analysis group is also responsible for establishing load and revenue projections. These projections focus on Research students, Commonwealth Supported Places (and the outcomes against the Federal government’s funding agreement) and Domestic Fee paying and International Fee paying load.
The Student Planning, Analysis & Reporting Capability (SPARC) is an Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) application developed by PIO to assist faculties and central portfolios perform complex load and revenue projections. It provides historical and projected data in range of standard reports across many variables. Planning cube data is sourced from an Oracle data warehouse containing detailed student, course and unit of study data taken at regular snapshots since 2006.
Curriculum and Course Planning Committee (CCPC)
The CCPC supports the University in achieving its strategic aims by embedding research-enriched and community-engaged teaching and learning in a renewed curriculum. From a planning perspective, CCPC is responsible for assessing the strategic fit, the business case and appropriateness of all new degree proposals. The PIO manages this process for CCPC and provides advice to the committee on the new course proposals and, at an institutional level, on student load and mix and course financial sustainability.
Further information on the course proposal submission process can be found on the CCPC web page
