Periodic tasks required of departments
At various times throughout the year specific tasks are placed upon the departmental administration to facilitate the continued operation of the University as indicated in the table below. This additional workload is on top of the day-to-day administration of departments and the chart is based on information provided by the major central services augmented by comment from some departments.
In the table a high monthly departmental loading is indicated by '2' and lesser loading by '1'. Overall there is a significant loading of specific tasks spread fairly evenly throughout the year but with the greatest loads appearing from September to January.
Periods of reduced loading coincide with the main closure and holiday periods in December, March/April and August which, although the overall load is shown as low, still maintains the pressure on the reduced number of administrative staff available at those times.
