Executive Board expenses

Expenses for Executive Board members are published quarterly, on a cumulative basis for the financial year to date. Expenditure comprises of directly reimbursed expenses, plus costs incurred on corporate credit cards and the cost of travel booked through the University’s travel management company.

Published expenditure reflects the different roles carried out by Executive Board members, with some members required to engage more widely outside the University, both within the UK and abroad, than others.

In December 2023 an incorrect version of the Executive Board expense summary was published on surrey.ac.uk in error. It included research and relocation costs for some Executive Board members that should have been coded elsewhere. This information was immediately removed from the website but we apologise for any confusion it might have caused at the time. This has now been rectified and the correct version of the information has now been published
