  • with an Oxford University-wide perspective, to examine the issues, opportunities and success factors for enhancing FM across the University
  • discuss FM issues and understand department priorities. Findings may be fed into wider University/FM policy
  • without changing responsibilities, to examine opportunities to share services clustering of support services for example departments sharing some staff for particular functions
  • consider impacts and opportunity to share resources, including the division of labour between the departments
  • consider opportunities for Best Practice
  • consider reducing duplication of effort and increasing standardisation in processes.

The forum meets on the fourth Friday of each term.
