Presentation to

Irish Universities Association

12th Annual HR Conference

4 October 2013


Some questions

  • A view from a centre?

  • Who are we?

  • How did we get here?

  • Where do we go next?


Where’s the centre?

  • The authorising environment

  • Confers legitimacy

  • Provides resources

  • Expresses expectations

  • Requires accountability


Where’s the centre?

We all have to account to someone……..

……..and that’s just as well


Where’s the centre?

  • So our centre isn’t really the centre

  • It’s our corner of the authorising environment

  • Or maybe just our ivory tower


Who are we?

  • The dead hand of bureaucracy?


Who are we?

  • Or agents of the people?


How did we get here?

  • Crunch, crash and crisis

  • Decision point for Government

  • Internal or external devaluation

    • All else followed from that


How did we get here?

  • Complete reliance on Troika

  • Complete commitment to Stability Programme

  • Close deficit; cut spending


How did we get here?

  • Deficit closed significantly

  • But further adjustments still needed

  • To restore economic sovereignty


How did we get here?


How did we get here?

  • Freedom is the by-product of economic surplus

    • - Aneurin Bevan, 1952


How did we get here?

  • Not random or arbitrary

  • Part of a clear strategy

  • Theory E over Theory O

  • Directive over participative


Participative?


Directive?


Where do we go next?

  • A regulator

  • A service

  • Co-operation and compliance


Where do we go next?

Differing short term and

long term perspectives


Where do we go next?

Theory E and regulation to manage financial crisis


Where do we go next?

Theory O and service to maintain and develop educational provision


Where do we go next?

  • A willingness to listen

  • An obligation to oversee

  • Compliance with the law our red line


The challenge

How do we – together – ensure that regulation a measure of last resort?
