The Council Affairs Unit as the name implies, is in charge of all Council matters. As the property and finances of the University are vested in Council, the Unit is in charge of the implementation of all policies formulated by Council.
The Unit, as is true of all other units in the Registry, operates through the Committee system. Apart from Council itself, there are important Committees such as the Procurement Committee which is in charge of all contract awards in the University; the Finance and General Purposes Committee which considers all financial matters on behalf of Council and makes appropriate recommendations thereon to Council; the Appointment and Promotions Committee (Academic, Administrative and Technical and Junior Staff) respectively and the Honorary Degrees Committee among others. Council is very important to the University at large as it represents the interest of Government in the University.
