Welcome to the Directorate of Planning and Development
The Directorate of Planning Development was established as Planning, Public Relations and Information (PPRI) as an office under the Vice-Chancellor. It was headed by the Registrar, Planning. The functions of the office included then, Planning, Public Relations and Information services at the university.
However, following departmental restructuring in the late 1990s, the public relations function was relocated and was domiciled in the office of the Vice-Chancellor under the Director of Corporate Affairs and Public Relations Manager.
In the mid 2021 the department was again restructured and named the Directorate of Planning and Development headed by the Director and domiciled in the office of the Chief Operations Office. It has merged with the Performance Contracting Office.
