Performance & Operating Framework - Peer Review 2017-18

Thank you for agreeing to be part of the review of the academic directorates for the Performance & Operating Framework (POF) paperwork. The aim of the review is to ensure that our academic directorates have achieved their POF targets and their objectives as laid out within their 2017/2018 POF documentation. From this, we will then discuss together, when we meet, whether the directorates should retain their academic status and if any PAs should be allocated to them.

Please read the guidance below outlining the process:
