In 2011, separate ad hoc committees comprising all Faculty Deans were appointed by the Provost to consider respective matters relating to the teaching staff. The recommendations by the ad hoc committees were consolidated into proposals and subsequently sent to the Deans Committee and VC’s Committee.  In consultation with the modifications proposed, papers for consultation were confirmed and sent to the teaching staff for review by broadcast email on April 11, 2012.  Teaching staff members were invited to send their views and comments regarding the above proposals to Department Chair, Faculty Dean and/or Provost's Office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) on or before May 4, 2012 [May 25, 2012 as extension by ~3 weeks].

Further to the Faculty consultation process, the Deans Committee and VC’s Committee considered the comments and feedback received.  Refinements to the proposals have been made based on the objectives to streamline the review arrangements and to work towards greater transparency in the mechanism and criteria for decision making on teaching staff.  A paper was attempted to seek advice from the said Committees.  Informal briefings about the major refinements were also held among certain staff organizations.  To date, the refined proposals are in the queue for consideration for approval at a meeting of the AAPC.

When the review arrangements in question were concluded at AAPC, the Guidelines on baseline requirements for different types of personnel decisions can be developed and put up for discussion at future meetings of the said Committees (including proposal for review for extension of service).
