The Resource Management Committee (RMC) is a joint committee of the Council and the General Board and reports into those committees via the Planning and Resources Committee (PRC). The RMC deals with the detailed work of resource allocation. The RMC gives Funding Approvals and allocates space, dealing with the detailed work on resource allocation, following proposals from the Space Management and Minor Works Sub-committee. The Planning and Resource Allocation Office allocates space less than 100 square metres under RMC supervision. RMC also approves proposals to share University space, including with Embedded Companies.
RMC and PRC propose the budget parameters, which are approved by the Finance Committee. RMC then constructs the budget for PRC approval. The budget then goes to Council with advice from the Finance Committee, prior to being Graced.
