The University needs timely, accurate and reliable data in order to manage activities and meet internal and external requirements to demonstrate accountability through accurate reporting.
Specifically the University needs to ensure its data quality so that it can:
- Provide effective and efficient services to students, staff and other stakeholders.
- Produce accurate and comprehensive management information on which timely, informed decisions can be made to inform the future of the institution.
- Monitor and review activities and operations.
- Produce accurate external returns to ensure accurate funding allocations, and to demonstrate accountability to public and private funders.
- Meet the terms of the Model Financial Memorandum between HEFCE (and its successor bodies) and institutions.
