Sub-delegation is not permitted at SCU (except by Council).

Under the university's founding legislation, the Southern Cross University Act 1993 (NSW), only the University Council can sub-delegate. This is a legislative restriction that only the NSW parliament can change.

However, under limited conditions delegates can authorise employees under their supervision to exercise a delegation on behalf of the delegate. The delegate retains full accountability for the authorised person's actions, and many restrictions apply.

Please refer to the Authorisations page, Delegations Rule and/or FAQs for further information.
