Saint Lucia to host the UWI budget meetings

The budgetary request covers the four campuses, the regional headquarters, and the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).

The University of the West Indies (UWI) is pleased to announce that the Government of Saint Lucia will host the annual meetings of the Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) to the Grants Committees of The UWI.

The meetings examine the university’s biennium budgets for the period 2017/2018 and 2018/2019, and make recommendations to the campus grants committees. The campus grants committees in turn—chaired by ministers of education or the ministers responsible for tertiary education; and including other members appointed by the governments of the campus countries (Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago)—review and approve the recommendations presented by the TACs, with their mandate being to evaluate the university’s budgetary proposals and recommend to governments the provision of the appropriate funding.
