The following templates have been mandated by the University Secretary for use by the University's Governance Committees and have been endorsed by the Office of Governance and Corporate Affairs for use by any other University committee.
|Full Report Confidential||Full Report Non-Confidential||This is the default template for most submissions to committees.|
|Full Report with Attachments Confidential||Full Report with Attachments Non-Confidential||This template is only to be used when an attachment is required. Attachments should be included by exception only ie. where a committee needs to see a specific document.|
|Summary Report Confidential||Summary Report Non-Confidential||This template is used where a subcommittee has considered the full report, but the superior committee needs more information than what would be included in a delegate report.|
|Delegate Report Confidential||Delegate Report Non-Confidential||This is a report by a delegate (ie. a subcommittee or an Executive with delegated authority) which provide assurance that delegate authority has been exercised appropriately.|
All submissions to Council and Council committees (excluding Academic Senate) are confidential and must use templates with a confidential watermark. Use of the confidential watermark for all other committees is only necessary where an item contains confidential information.
The submission template is not a ‘coversheet’ with the ‘report’ included as an attachment. Report length should be a balance between the smallest practicable number of pages while covering the key issues appropriately. It can be expected that lengthy submissions (e.g. more than 10 pages) or those including unnecessary detail will be returned to authors for editing.

The Report Repository is a central information source for all reporting at the University. The key aim of this repository is to be a useful resource for report authors and committees. It is a space to document all information about a report, to retain institutional knowledge, to help identify gaps, understand timing and data constraints, streamline work-flow and reduce duplication.
The Report Repository is located in the Teams site CSU-Governance Committees. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange access.
