Staff cash boost

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) is consulting higher education institutions on how to allocate an additional £80 million announced in the Government’s spending review for 2001-2 for rewarding, retaining, and developing staff.

Institutions have until June 2001 to submit their strategies for addressing priority areas, including recruiting and retaining world-class staff.

The amount available in future years is £120m in 2002-3, and expected to be at least £170m in 2003-4. The extra funding is aimed at enabling institutions to recruit and retain high quality academic staff and improve human resources development and staff management. For more information, contact Matthew Knight in human resources on ext 6644.
