Major Initiatives Implementation and Oversight (MIIO)
MIIO advises the Vice-Chancellor on the implementation of University strategy and monitors key initiatives. To ensure co-ordination between the two bodies, the Vice-Chancellor and Senior Vice-Presidents are members of both the Vice-Chancellor's Executive Committee, which deals with all matters of strategy, policy and budget, and MIIO.
Terms of reference
Major Initiatives Implementation and Oversight will:
- Make recommendations to the Vice-Chancellor on the implementation of the University's strategy and monitor the University's performance against the strategic and operational plans;
- Ensure a prompt and strongly co-ordinated approach to the evaluation of academic and business opportunities, review submissions for major new initiatives against the University's strategic plan and monitor their performance and risks;
- Review the use of resources and performance across all organisational units (eg faculties, schools, departments, portfolios);
- Monitor the University's key risk profile, key risk and performance indicators and financial performance against its strategic objectives;
- Receive formal Post Implementation Review (PIR) report from the responsible executive on completion or transfer to 'business as usual' status.
The MIIO will meet once every three weeks.
Substitutes will not be permitted unless a member plans to be absent from the University for more than four weeks. However if a Dean is an apology then another Dean may replace them.
