Delegations provide formal authority to Council members, University officers and University committees to make decisions and act on the University's behalf.

The Griffith University Act 1998, together with University policies and procedures, establish the conditions under which delegations and other authorities are exercised within the University. The Delegations Framework provides the structure for the allocation, exercise and management of delegations of authority.

The following documents constitute the Framework:

  • Delegations Policy
  • Delegations Procedure
  • Delegations Register

The Delegations Framework supports the University's governance arrangements, objectives and principles for decision making that align responsibility, accountability and capability.

All authorised delegations are published in the Delegations Register.
