A delegation is a conferral by the Council of its power and authority to perform functions on an officer or body of the University. Delegations provide formal authority for officers, committees or other bodies to commit the University, incur liability for the University or otherwise use the powers provided to the University under the University of New England Act, 1993 (NSW). Council retains and can exercise all delegated powers and authorities.

The Delegations Register is an online database of staff and committees who hold delegations at the University. Currently the Delegations Register includes Schedules for Financial; Human Resources; Governance and Miscellaneous Matters; Identity and Engagement; Information Systems and Infrastructure; Legal; and Research delegations. The purpose of the Register is to maintain and provide up to date and accurate information about delegation holders in terms of organisational unit and level of delegated authority over which a delegate may exercise authority. Delegations apply to positions or committees and not to individuals.

Delegations held by the least senior delegate are also held by that delegate's immediate supervisor or line manager and successively by each subsequent supervisor or line manager with the chain of delegation.  All delegations are subject to the delegate’s financial delegation.

If you have any queries about the Delegations Register, or require any assistance in its use, please do not hesitate to contact Records Policy and Governance Unit at delegations@une.edu.au
