Q4 2019/2020

Report Date
August 2020

With the ongoing closure of University buildings, and the continuation of remote working, the formal launch of the Awards is still delayed until the 5 campuses reopen. At that time, widespread communications and individual contact with teams will be carried out to recruit teams and to encourage participation.  Given the uncertain timeline, there continues to be a risk to the project being carried out within it's expected timeframe. 

Resources for the 2020-2021 Awards year have been reviewed and updated. This includes extensive updates to the Awards online platform.

At present there are 18 teams still accredited from the 2019-2020 Awards participating, along with 11 teams who have already expressed a commitment to taking part this year. Additionally, a further 11 teams have expressed interest in participating (including 2018-2019 teams who would be due to take part this year in order to maintain their accreditation). This brings the total number of participating and interested teams to 40.

A participation mapping exercise was undertaken to map out the participation levels of each College and Professional Group in both the Office and Lab Awards, to the School/Department level. Of the 61 Schools and Departments, 36 have at least one Awards team which is active, still accredited or interested in participating - a 59% coverage rate.

RAG Commentary
Due to University closures, the Awards launch, team recruitment, and working through Awards criteria by teams have all been delayed. This could mean that the Awards are unable to be carried out in the expected timeframe.
