The Provost is accountable to the Vice-Chancellor for operational matters in the scholarly information portfolio.
The forum that provides advice to inform the decisions of the Provost is the Scholarly Information Advisory Group (SIAG). It advises on the development of information services, resources and strategies in support of teaching and learning and related academic activities including the identification of IT systems priorities (and associated operating costs).
Relationship to University Committees and Portfolio Heads
On advice from the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Teaching, Learning and Equity) and the SIAG, the Provost may refer issues to University committees which have significant policy, resource or academic implications, or other portfolio heads for issues relevant to their portfolio.
The Provost may establish further advisory groups to provide information and recommendations to the SIAG.
