Resource allocation

The pages in this section provide an overview of the following:

  • The Joint Resource Allocation Advisory Board (JRAAB) is primarily an expert body tasked to make recommendations to Council through PRAC and to the Conference of Colleges on issues concerning the Joint Resource Allocation Method.
  • The Joint Resource Allocation Method (JRAM) is used to identify the top-level split of funding between the University and the colleges of the three areas of undergraduate education, postgraduate education, for research, and to distribute the University's share between the divisions.
  • The Collegiate Funding Formula (CFF) is the means by which the Conference of Colleges has agreed to distribute resources between the various colleges.
  • The Infrastructure Charge is levied on the academic divisions to fund the central services of the University.
  • The Joint Resource Allocation Review Group (JRARG) was set up in March 2012 to review the operation of the Teaching JRAM in light of the new fees and funding regime.
