APPROVAL TO HOLD OUTSIDE
APPOINTMENTS


Guidelines on the holding of outside
appointments from 18 June 2001

These guidelines outline new procedures for obtaining approval to hold outside
appointments. No changes have been made to the University's policy, nor to
the individuals and types of appointment covered by the policy.

All university
employees, with the exception of CUF lecturers, are required to obtain
approval for the holding of any outside appointment. The
following do not count as outside appointments for this purpose (see Ch. VII,
Sect. I, § 5.A, cll. 10--11; Statutes, 2000, p. 370):

—the holding of the office of Proctor or Assessor;

—the holding of the office of examiner in any examination which is part
of a degree course at any university;

—the holding of a commemorative lecturership or similar post in any
university with the duty to give not more than eight lectures in any year of
office;

—activities or responsibilities normally associated with, or arising from,
scholarly work which do not involve a formal and continuing contract.

The University permits its employees to hold outside appointments without
deduction of stipend subject to the following conditions:

—the total commitment to such outside appointments must
not exceed thirty days per year
[1]
;

—any contractual terms proposed to cover the outside appointment must
be scrutinised by the Research Services Office on behalf of the University, and
must not be amended without the prior written approval of the Research
Services Office;

—the employee's head of department
[2]
must approve the
application.

Outside appointments can take a
number of different forms, such as consultancy, private professional practice,
expert witness and non-executive directorships. (Approval will not be given for
the holding of executive directorships.) These are activities carried
out outside the University and are contracted for from the individual's personal
address. University letterhead, facilities, and premises should not
be used without the University's express permission.

Certain types of activity involving
consultancy/services to industry may be carried out within the University and
may be included, where appropriate, within projects funded by
externally-funded research grants and contacts. These are described below.

Procedures for applying for approval to hold outside appointments

(a) Applicants must complete an application form (form OA1,
available on the University's Web site at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/ps/outappts.htm, or in hard copy from departmental
administrators/faculty board secretaries).

(b) Applicants whose salaries are funded from
externally-funded research grants or contracts, or who are Principal
Investigators or Co-Investigators on outside-sponsored projects, must adhere
to the terms and conditions stipulated by or agreed with the sponsor and, if
necessary, seek written approval from the sponsor.
[3]
The Research Services
Office is able to provide advice on the terms and conditions of
externally-funded research grants and contracts held by the University
(telephone: (2)70143).

(c) Where it is appropriate for the outside appointment to be
covered by a contract or letter of agreement, and particularly when the external
organisation requires a written agreement to cover a consultancy, applicants
must arrange for the terms governing the outside appointment to be scrutinised
by the Research Services Office in advance of signature. (All applicants are,
in fact, advised to stipulate in writing the terms which will govern their outside
activities for an external organisation, not least to limit their personal liability.)
The University's legal advisers have drafted a standard personal consultancy
document which serves as a useful starting point for discussions around the
terms of a consultancy appointment. This is available from the Research
Services Office (telephone: (2)70143) or on the Research Services Web site at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/agreements/pcaform.htm.

(d) The Research Services Office scrutinises the terms of an
agreement in order to consider their compatibility with the University's
interests as employer. The office cannot advise the employee on the terms from
the employee's standpoint; and the employee should take his or her own advice
unless he or she makes use of Oxford University Consulting Limited (see
paragraph 8 below).

(e) Applicants must obtain the approval of their direct line
manager where relevant.

(f) When the Research Services Office has confirmed in
writing that the terms proposed to govern the outside appointment meet the
University's minimum requirements and the necessary approvals have been
obtained from the relevant line manager or sponsor (as appropriate), applicants
should submit the completed form to their head of department, who will be
asked to sign to confirm that he/she is content to approve the outside
appointment in the context of the applicant's university duties. Heads of
department who themselves wish to hold outside appointments must submit
their application forms to their head of division for approval. Heads of
Division should submit applications to the Vice-Chancellor
.

(g) If the above procedures are followed and the relevant
approvals obtained, applicants will be granted insurance cover for the outside
appointment in question under the University's professional indemnity
insurance policy, subject to the limitations of that policy. Details may be
obtained from the Insurance Officer, Mr G.C. Waite (telephone: (2)80307).


Consultancies within research grant applications and contracts

The holding of a consultancy may be included where appropriate within
research grant applications and contracts. Where consultancies are included in
this way and provision is made through the payroll to pay staff for such work,
the Outside Grants (OG) form should itemise, among the costs of the project,
the costs of the consultancy payment (including employers' on-costs). Indirect
costs should also be calculated on the total cost of the project, including the fee
for the consultancy. The Research Services Office (telephone: (2)70143) will
be able to advise on the most appropriate form of agreement to cover
consultancies attached to research grants or contracts. Time spent on such
consultancies will count towards the thirty-day limit.


Other services to industry and outside bodies

Not all work for outside bodies is governed by a contract with an external
sponsor under the University's research grants and contracts procedures. Some
is likely to be `service' work, i.e. the provision of a service to an external
organisation which is not of academic benefit but which makes use of spare
capacity in a department in return for payment. Such arrangements should
nevertheless be covered by an agreement approved by the head of department
which is drawn up in consultation with the departmental administrator and (for
tax reasons) with the Finance Division. If the service agreement proposed by
the outside body includes terms and conditions relating to intellectual property
or confidentiality of information, or does not incorporate the University's
standard disclaimer of liability, this will require an authorised signature on
behalf of the University. In such cases, the agreement should be forwarded to
the Research Services Office which is required to ensure that appropriate
disclaimers of liability have been issued in connection with the provision of
services to industry and other outside bodies.

Where appropriate, as with
consultancies within research grant applications and contracts, a payment may
be made through the payroll to individuals for the additional work undertaken
in performing the services. It is expected that the head of department will
decide on an appropriate fee to be paid to the individual based on the time
spent (which again will count towards the thirty-day per year limit). The
instructions to the Finance Division to make such payments are processed
through the Research Services Office. In such cases, where an agreement has
been made with University in respect of the service, it is not expected that a
further personal consultancy agreement with the academic concerned will be
necessary.


Financial arrangements

The University does not generally seek details of remuneration which
applicants are to receive under arrangements for outside appointments, but
reserves the right to request to be provided with such details in certain
circumstances e.g. in the light of any potential conflict of interest with the
outside appointment. Applicants wishing exceptionally to make a case to spend
a total of more than thirty days in any one year on outside appointments will
be required to provide details of remuneration.


Use of computing facilities

University IT and network facilities, including software, are provided for use
for educational purposes only, in accordance with the `University Rules for
Computer Use', which may be found on the University Web site at
http://www.ox.ac.uk/it/rules/rules.html.


Monitoring and reporting

(a) Heads of department are responsible, through their
departmental administration, for keeping records of the number of days spent
on outside appointments by all staff (regardless of staff group) in their
departments.

(b) Heads of department will report their approvals of outside
appointments, and the basic details of the outside appointments, to their
divisions on an annual basis, by the end of July each year.

(c) Divisions are responsible, through their divisional
administration, for monitoring and co-ordinating information relating to all
approvals for outside appointments submitted by departments within their
remit, and for making an annual return to the Personnel Committee by the end
of September each year.


Oxford University Consultancy Limited

The University has established a wholly-owned subsidiary company, Oxford
University Consultancy Limited, to help members of the University to market
their expertise to outside bodies, to negotiate commercial terms and payment
on behalf of individuals, and to manage the administration associated with
consultancy. OUC Limited offers a professional service for academics and
departments throughout the University, which will identify consultancy and
related opportunities with local, national and international companies and
organisations. Details of this service may be obtained by telephone ((2)80829)
or by e-mail at enquiries@consulting.ox.ac.uk.

Members of the University
choosing to use the services of OUC Limited must still follow the internal
procedures for university approval of their outside appointments as outlined in
these guidelines; OUC Limited will, however, assist the process on behalf of
the individuals concerned.


Footnotes

[1]
Approval for cases where the proposed commitment exceeds thirty days
may still be sought; in such cases the department will refer the request to the
divisional board and if it is approved a deduction in university stipend will be
made. Partial or full secondment may be more appropriate for particularly
time-consuming outside appointments.

CAREERS SERVICE


Careers Advice Service for Contract Research
Staff

This initiative, provided by the University Careers Service at 56 Banbury Road
(in addition to services provided to students), aims to encourage and enable
academic-related research staff, who are employed directly by the University
on fixed term contracts (contract research staff), to make and implement well-
informed decisions about their careers by:

—providing impartial, professional, careers advice;

—supporting them in recognising and developing the attributes necessary
for successful career development;

—enabling them to appreciate and explore the range of opportunities
available;

—assisting them to clarify their values, interests, abilities and skills and
to relate these to possible career options;

—providing access to a wide variety of careers information and resources
to facilitate the formulation and implementation of career plans.

The service operates flexibly in an attempt to cater for personal needs,
whether individuals are generally uncertain about the career options open to
them, considering reviewing or changing their career direction, or thinking
about finding a new job in academia, commerce, industry, the public sector,
or setting up their own business, etc.

Following registration, members of contract research staff will have access
to up to four, confidential, one-to-one meetings with a careers adviser to help
clarify personal and career objectives and to identify the main career options
open to them. They may also see the Duty Adviser at the Careers Service to
help resolve brief queries and make use of the wide range of careers
information resources held at the Careers Service, including a computerised
careers guidance system. Psychometric ability testing and personality profiling
for career development purposes (with feedback) can also be arranged, on an
ad hoc basis, where sufficient demand exists. In addition, three
career development workshops (Career Review and Planning, Job Search
Skills, and Effective Interview Preparation), all designed specifically for
contract research staff who are looking to review their career options, or to
find alternative work, are run at various times throughout the year. To book
a place on any of these workshops contact the Institute for the Advancement
of University Learning (telephone: (2)86808, e-mail:
services@learning.ox.ac.uk).

Further details of the service are available from John Kirwan, the careers
adviser for contract research staff (telephone: (2)74736, e-mail:
crs@cas.ox.ac.uk., Web site: www.careers.ox.ac.uk).

SLADE LECTURES 2002

This year, for the first time, the Slade Lectures will be given as a set of eight lectures by
different authorities on a single subject. Charles Saumarez Smith, as Slade Professor, has
convened a series of lectures on the subject of contemporary museums both in Britain and
internationally. He has invited those who have been involved professionally with the world
of museums, as museum directors or as writers, critics, and architects, to reflect on the state
of the museum today: how and why museums have changed over the last half century; what
part they play in contemporary culture; and what challenges they face in the future.
