Business Case templates

A Business Case provides the justification for setting up, funding or continuing to fund a project or Pillar Plan initiative (including partnership opportunities with external third parties) and should succinctly contain all relevant details required to enable the reader to make informed decisions. Finance and Procurement have developed three different templates for use by University staff.
