The vote formula resource allocation methodology

The Vote Formula: Resource Allocation Methodology

Planning Division

April 2011


What is the vote formula

What is the Vote Formula?

  • The College’s main mechanism for distributing general funds to the faculties (and the Business School)

  • Most (but not all) income from HEFCE and from fees that the College receives is distributed to faculties through the Gross Vote Formula

  • Some of that resource is retrieved through the Infrastructure Charge mechanism to fund the College’s support services


The vote formula

The Vote Formula

  • Each Faculty (and the Business School) receives a Net Vote allocation

  • This consists of its share of the Gross Vote

  • Gross Vote = T + R + c + s + o + p

  • less its share of the Infrastructure Charge

  • Net Vote = Gross Vote – Infrastructure Charge


2011 12 vote formula allocating the gross vote

Gross Vote £199M

2011-12 Vote Formula: Allocating the Gross Vote

The following four items are distributed to faculties

The Gross Vote is then split between R and T using the “R:T ratio”

These amounts are distributed via the Research and Teaching formula using weightings and volumes

Teaching (56%)

Research (44%)

£62M
