Submission of business cases

How to submit a business case.

Interim arrangements for 2018/19

During 2018/19 business cases will be reviewed by the University Executive Board (in place of the University Planning Team). Please submit all business cases via email to Mark Demmen, m.demmen@bath.ac.uk. The business case template and guidance document are available to download.

If the business case has financial or resource implications, any supporting financial analysis must be signed-off by the Faculty/School/Professional Services Accountant and/or Head of Management Accounting.

The process for new programme approvals is outlined in QA3. A business case on form QA3.1 needs to be approved by the University Executive Board before the programme is considered for initial strategic approval.
