University Performance Targets and Progress Reports
University Performance Indicators are included in the Strategic Plan 2015-2020 publication and are used to guide and measure performance.
University Performance Targets are specific statements about the level of performance or a milestone that is to be achieved. The University Performance Targets are included within a supplementary document and are reviewed annually to reflect the changing internal and external environment.
The high level University Performance Indicators and Targets do not measure all of the University’s activities. Further breakdowns and/or additional measures are identified within the Portfolio Programs, Organisational Unit Plans and Individual Performance Plans.
The University’s progress against the Strategic Goals and Key Result Areas is monitored through the biannual Traffic Light Report. The Report provides an update on key project milestones and an analysis of the high-level University Performance Indicators and Targets. Based on the quantitative and qualitative data available, a Traffic Light Indicator (Red, Amber or Green) has been assigned to illustrate the assessment of the UPIs as follows:
High likelihood target will not be achieved and additional actions are required.
Potential to not achieve target and additional actions are in place or there is a lack of data and difficult to accurately determine progress against target.
Above or on track to achieve target.
It should be noted that the indicators are not weighted to reflect the size or importance of a particular area.
