These hearings effectively exonerated the DES but severely blamed the UGC in words that effectively spelt out a redefined relationship between universities and the state: Respect for the independence of the universities is important but this does not mean that the UGC should have abjured sufficient control to be able to assure themselves of competent financial performance by universities. (Committee of Public Accounts 1990a) By this time the 1988 Act had swept away the UGC and replaced it with a Universities Funding Council (and a Polytechnics and Colleges Funding Council) where in both cases the chief executive officer of the Council became the accounting officer for the system.
The precise constitutional definitions of the power of a vice-chancellor give little indication of the potency of the role. The standard wording in the charter of a pre-1992 civic university model states no more than that: The Vice-Chancellor shall have a general responsibility to the Council and the Senate for maintaining and promoting the efficiency and good order of the University. (University of Warwick ibid d) But within that bland formula there could be many variations in style and effectiveness.
