This document provides a step-by-step approach to looking at the material available for consultation.
In addition to the legislative prompts from, for example, the Data Protection Act 1998, there have been numerous requests for guidelines or policy statements on the management of University records. You can find here information about:
There is a document which lists consultations as they are undertaken. You can check what is going on at this page, but we will also write by e-mail to appropriate groups of staff for each set of material. Thus, if Departmental Administrators are identified as the group which would need to undertake an action, they will be asked specifically to look at the relevant material, and to comment on it. Proposals will also be drawn to the attention of other groups which would have an interest in them. The members of the Steering Group would be pleased to receive comments from any member of the University community about these proposals.
If you consider that what is proposed should be adopted as University policy, you need take no further action (though it would be encouraging for the Steering Group to hear, if you think the proposals are right). If, on the other hand, you consider that some point has been missed, or that a different approach should be taken on a particular item, you are invited to register your view.
Following the consultation period, subsequent action will be taken in accordance with procedure document.
Please look at the proposals approved by the Registrar as University policy at approved policy.
