UOW Planning & Reporting Framework
The University’s Strategic Plan is underpinned by 6 Core Strategies. The Core Strategies activate the Strategic Plan into whole-of-institution actions designed to guide progress in the direction we have set for ourselves over the next five years. These Core Strategies guide all operational level planning, measures and reporting, as they are operationalised by Faculties, Divisions and other University areas.
Our Planning and Reporting Framework activates UOW’s 2016-2020 Strategic Plan via a clearly articulated planning and accountability structure that integrates with and is applied to all levels of Planning and Reporting to ensure UOW achieves its strategic vision and objectives.

The Planning and Reporting Framework, approved by Council in April 2016, applies to all planning and reporting at UOW from 2017 onwards.
