The FSSG published a report in June 2011 describing the findings of a UK-wide study to develop indicators of institutional sustainability. UK institutions can use these indicators to manage their future, and to provide assurance to their funding and regulatory bodies.

The report describes how to approach assessing sustainability, using an intelligent and forward-looking synthesis of data from a variety of sources. It has to be done by each institution in the light of its own circumstances and strategy, and is the responsibility of the governing body, advised by the senior management.
