UTS Planning and Improvement Framework

Refer to Staff Connect for current information: Planning and improvement at UTS

The UTS Planning and Improvement Framework (PIF) describes the university's overall planning and improvement process. It includes the Plan, Do, Review, Improve (PDRI) quality management cycle (as described in the diagram below). The PDRI cycle integrates quality improvement into the strategic planning process and aims to build continuous improvement across all projects, processes and activities. Stakeholder consultation is a vital element of the PDRI cycle.

The Planning and Improvement Framework policy is at UTS Legislation, Rules and Policies.
The ten core concepts that guide planning and improvement at UTS is detailed in Planning & Improvement Framework Principles (pdf).

The UTS Values: Discover, Engage, Empower, Deliver, Sustain, are embedded in all of these activities and guide our performance.

As part of the quality management approach, the university benchmarks its performance, ideas and practices against other organisations. Performance data is integral to this.
