The representative advisory bodies and the Executive Board will hold consultations on the 2017 Framework Letter in late May. The Joint Meeting will have until 12 June to approve the document. Once the Joint Meeting has approved the final version, the definitive 2017 Framework Letter will be adopted by the Executive Board.

Consultations on 2017 UvA budget
