Call for efficiencies in Universities

John Denham (Secretary of State) has written to HEFCE laying out the savings that Universities have been asked to make. He writes of the "absolute priority of protecting and enhancing the quality of teaching and research, while sustaining progress in widening participation."

The Guardian reports the story under a headline of "Universities told to cut admin costs"

"Savings should come from programmes that 'do not directly contribute to the frontline delivery of teaching and research', he added."

Rather interesting - how much of that admin cost is imposed by external, government bodies?
