REINTRODUCTION OF THE OXFORD
MOBILITY INCENTIVE SCHEME (OMIS) WITH EFFECT FROM 1
JANUARY 2001


I. Introduction

In order to achieve planned reductions in established university staff, Council
has agreed to reintroduce the Oxford Mobility Incentive Scheme (OMIS) for
a limited period from 1 January to 31 December 2001. Details of OMIS are set
out in section II below.

Council has also agreed that, as an alternative, established staff aged 55 and
over on the effective date of retirement who satisfy the conditions of the OMIS
scheme may apply for premature retirement under the USS Premature
Retirement Scheme if they are members of USS, or under the parallel
provision for non-academic staff if they are members of OSPS. Details of the
Premature Retirement Scheme (PRS) are set out in section III.

In all cases the resignation of the member of staff must be entirely voluntary
and must be in the `management interest'. That is, the voluntary resignation
must result in a vacancy which leads to a net saving which will contribute to
the ability of the relevant unit to keep within its budget. The OMIS Steering
Committee will expect that (a) the net savings from the voluntary
resignation will normally finance the costs of OMIS within two years, or the
costs of PRS within three years (the difference in the notional payback period
for OMIS and PRS reflecting the potentially higher maximum cost of PRS in
terms of multiples of annual salary); and (b) the total savings over
a number of years should normally amount to at least twice those costs.

Members of established university staff wishing to inquire further, without
commitment, or wishing to take advantage of the schemes are invited, in the
first instance, to discuss their position with the employing authority for their
post (i.e. academic staff are invited to consult their head of division, or faculty
board chairman, or head of department; and academic-related and
non-academic staff are invited to consult their head of department or
departmental administrator). Where the preliminary and without prejudice
assessment of the employing authority is that the interested person's resignation
might be in the management interest, the person may then be referred to the
University's Head of Payroll and Pensions (Mrs K. Eldridge, telephone:
(2)70152), who will normally arrange to see the individual concerned and
discuss the scheme benefits in relation to their own particular circumstances.
It would be helpful if individual members of staff did not approach her directly
in the first instance, but were referred to her by the relevant employing
authority. If, following discussion with the Head of Payroll and Pensions, an
individual is willing to submit a resignation under the terms of OMIS or PRS,
the employing authority should obtain a copy of the OMIS/PRS application
form and the benefit calculations from Mrs Eldridge. Completed OMIS/PRS
application forms require the signature of the relevant head of division before
being submitted to the OMIS Steering Committee for consideration and
possible approval. No binding offers of OMIS/PRS benefits may be made to
any person without prior formal approval from the OMIS Steering Committee.

II. Details of the Oxford Mobility Incentive
Scheme (2001)

1. The features of the Oxford Mobility Incentive Scheme are:

(a) That the scheme will be entirely voluntary and will feature
a consensual termination of employment in each individual case.

(b) That there will be no obligation upon particular individual
members of staff to avail themselves of the scheme, and each eligible member
of staff will be free to choose to consider, or to ignore, the scheme offered.

(c) That the scheme should offer an incentive to established
staff, aged 63 and under, to consider obtaining and moving to other
employment or paid activity not with the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of
the University of Oxford, and/or retiring early.

(d) That the invitation to apply for the mobility incentive
scheme benefits will be open to all established staff in the employment of the
Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of the University of Oxford and aged 63 or
under on the effective date of termination of employment. (Established staff
for this purpose are defined as those members of staff who, according to
central records, are appointed to (or held against) university posts in which the
first letter of the post number prefix is A-E inclusive and whose appointment
is not for a fixed term of seven years or less.)

(e) That, within OMIS, the financial benefits to each qualifying
member of staff may, according to individual circumstances, be used by the
University to purchase enhanced pension provision and/or be taken as a
lump-sum payment. (See also para. 5.)

(f) That OMIS benefits will be paid, however, only on an ex
gratia basis and in cases where, inter alia, the voluntary resignation
of the individual member of staff concerned is in the management interests of
the University. That is, the voluntary resignation should result in a vacancy
which leads to a net saving which will contribute to the ability of the relevant
unit to keep within its budget. The OMIS steering group will expect that the
savings will be at least the equivalent of the cost of OMIS benefits and
normally should amount to at least twice those costs. In all cases, the voluntary
resignation must be consistent with operational needs and future plans as well
as being a resignation which would not have occurred but for the availability
of OMIS.

(g) That the Oxford Mobility Incentive Scheme will be offered
for a specific limited period up to 31 December 2001 at the latest, for all
members of established staff who resign with effect from a date within the
period of availability of the scheme[1] NAME="1note">
and satisfy the necessary criteria. The
scheme may be withdrawn by Council at any earlier point if financial limits
are reached, or if the required levels of staff reductions are achieved, or if
other more appropriate national schemes or guidelines become available, or for
any other appropriate reason. In determining the management interest,
departments will also have regard to the RAE and Category A staff will not
normally be permitted to retire before 1 April 2001.

2. The level of financial benefit within OMIS is to be based upon basic
monthly university pay at the date of termination of employment and, for staff
aged 60 or under, will broadly reflect: (i) years of continuous employment
beyond two with the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of the University of
Oxford, up to a set maximum; and (ii) in the case of `tenured' HREF="#note2">[2]
established
staff, years of service remaining to age 65, up to a separate maximum. In the
case of non-`tenured' staff, there will be a fixed sum to replace the additional
second element described above. In certain circumstances, the OMIS benefit
from element (i) above may exceed one year's university salary, but in no case,
even with the full component related to `tenured' service to age 65, will the
combined level of benefits exceed two years' university salary. For staff aged
61--63 inclusive, lower maximum limits on OMIS benefit will apply. Special
limits on OMIS benefit may also apply (1) where a member of academic staff
moves to take up a senior academic or related position not with the Chancellor,
Masters, and Scholars of the University of Oxford; and/or (2) where
arrangements to leave were at an advanced stage before 31 October 2000.
OMIS payments in excess of £30,000 will be taxable in accordance with
the prevailing Inland Revenue rules.

3. If the salary point on which OMIS benefits have been calculated and
paid to an individual is subsequently increased and that increase is to be
effective on or before the date of termination of employment, OMIS benefits
will be recalculated on the basis of the increased salary point, and the balance
will be paid to the individual concerned.

4. Members of staff holding joint university/college appointments should
note that the Oxford Mobility Incentive Scheme concerns only employment
with the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of the University of Oxford, and
the associated university salary. It does not apply to employment with a
college. However, Council has agreed that termination of employment with the
University under OMIS will not be agreed in the case of a holder of a joint
appointment without full consultation with the relevant college. To this end,
it has been agreed that where an application for OMIS benefits is received
from the holder of a joint appointment, the head of division (or nominee) will
consult a nominated representative from the college concerned in order to seek
to avoid any clash of managerial interest between the college and the
University. Moreover, the Chairman of the Academic Committee of the
Conference of Colleges will be a member of the OMIS steering committee,
where applications for OMIS (and PRS) benefits from members of the
academic staff will be finally considered (after appropriate discussion at
divisional/faculty board level), in order to ensure that college interests are
properly taken into account.

5. In certain circumstances, staff who qualify for OMIS benefits and who
will be aged 50 or over at the date of termination of employment may, in
addition, be eligible for their accrued university pension benefits to be brought
into payment upon the termination of their employment with the University
and in some cases payment of accrued university pension benefits may be
made without actuarial reduction. Confidential advice on this matter will be
available to individual members of staff from the Head of Payroll and
Pensions, and individuals may make an inquiry without any commitment on
their part.

6. In exceptional circumstances (such as the temporary need to meet
declining teaching commitments in consequence of rationalisation and change)
the strictly limited part-time re-engagement of staff in receipt of OMIS benefits
may be sanctioned for a fixed non-renewable term, but in all cases individuals
who resign from employment with the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of the
University of Oxford and receive OMIS benefits may not normally be
re-employed by the University, even in an unestablished post, without the prior
approval of the OMIS Steering Committee.


PROVISIONS FOR DETERMINING THE LEVEL OF OMIS
BENEFITS

Note. In each individual
case, check first the eligibility and qualifying criteria given below and also

1. Staff eligible to apply for OMIS benefits

All established staff employed by the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of the
University of Oxford and whose appointments are not for a fixed term of seven
years or less, are eligible to apply for OMIS benefits.

For the purposes of OMIS, `established staff' is to be interpreted as referring
either (a) to those members of staff who, according to central
records, are currently appointed to university posts in which the first letter of
the post number prefix is A--E inclusive and who have occupied that post
continuously since a date on or before 1 July 2000, or (b) to those
members of staff who were appointed to a university post in which the first
letter of the post number prefix is A-E inclusive and who hold an established
letter of appointment for their category of staff and who are notionally held
against that vacant established post while temporarily occupying one or more
outside grant funded posts.

The seven year requirement will exclude, for example, those staff (such as
departmental lecturers and clinical lecturers) who are appointed to established
posts for periods not exceeding six years.

Staff in other posts, even if they hold letters of appointment which may be
open-ended and identical to those issued to members of established staff, are
not eligible for OMIS.

2. Qualifying conditions for the payment of OMIS benefits

All the following criteria must be satisfied.

2.1 The member of staff must be eligible to apply for OMIS benefits.

2.2 The member of staff must be aged 63 or under on the date of termination

before the final acceptance by the University of that resignation, the member
of staff must have been given a period of 14 days in which to retract his or her
offer of resignation.

2.4 The effective date of termination of employment must be within the period
of availability of the OMIS scheme and not later than 31 December 2001. (In
exceptional circumstances, such as the need to meet an essential teaching or
research commitment, staff whose resignation was tendered and accepted
within the period of availability of the scheme and is to be effective on a date
no later than 31 March 2002, may be granted OMIS benefits.) In determining
the management interest, departments will also have regard to the RAE and
Category A staff will not normally be permitted to retire before 1 April
2001.

2.5 The voluntary resignation of the member of staff concerned must be in the
management interests of the University:

2.5.1 The voluntary resignation must result in a vacancy which leads to a net
saving which will contribute to the ability of the relevant unit to keep within
its budget. The OMIS steering group will expect that the total savings will be

amount to at least twice those costs;

and 2.5.2 in all cases, the voluntary resignation must be consistent with
operational needs and future plans and be a resignation which would not have
occurred but for the availability of OMIS.

2.6 The savings from the vacancy must finance, normally within two years, the
cost of the OMIS benefits to be granted to the member of staff concerned.

2.7 Formal written approval must be given by the OMIS Steering Committee
for the payment of OMIS benefits

(Provision 3.1 may, for example, restrict OMIS benefits in cases where
staff are moving in the course of normal academic promotion or
development.)

III. Premature Retirement under USS or OSPS

USS and OSPS permit the purchase of additional years/days of pensionable
service at the discretion of the University. The University has agreed that, for
the period 1 January to 31 December 2001, premature retirement under these
approved schemes will be available to established staff aged 55 and over at the
effective date of retirement. The criteria and procedures for premature
retirement will reflect those for OMIS (section II, paras. 1--6).


1. Staff eligible to apply for PRS

All established staff employed by the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars of the
University of Oxford and whose appointments are not for a fixed term of seven
years or less, are eligible to apply for PRS.

For the purposes of PRS, `established staff' is to be interpreted as referring
either (a) to those members of staff who, according to central
records, are currently appointed to university posts in which the first letter of
the post number prefix is A--E inclusive and who have occupied that post
continuously since a date on or before 1 July 2000, or (b) to those
members of staff who were appointed to a university post in which the first
letter of the post number prefix is A-E inclusive and who hold an established
letter of appointment for their category of staff and who are notionally held
against that vacant established post while temporarily occupying one or more
outside grant funded posts.

The seven year requirement will exclude, for example, those staff (such as
departmental lecturers and clinical lecturers) who are appointed to established
posts for periods not exceeding six years.

Staff in other posts, even if they hold letters of appointment which may be
open-ended and identical to those issued to members of established staff, are
not eligible for PRS.


2. Qualifying conditions for PRS

All the following criteria must be satisfied.

2.1 The member of staff must be eligible to apply for PRS.

2.2 The member of staff must be aged 55 or over on the date of termination
of employment.

2.3 The resignation of the member of staff must be entirely voluntary and,
before the final acceptance by the University of that resignation, the member
of staff must have been given a period of 14 days in which to retract his or her
offer of resignation.

2.4 The effective date of termination of employment must be within the period
of availability of the PRS scheme and not later than 31 December 2001. (In
exceptional circumstances, such as the need to meet an essential teaching or
research commitment, staff whose resignation was tendered and accepted
within the period of availability of the scheme and is to be effective on a date
no later than 31 March 2002, may be granted PRS benefits.) In determining the
management interest, departments will also have regard to the RAE and
Category A staff will not normally be permitted to retire before 1 April
2001.

2.5 The voluntary resignation of the member of staff concerned must be in the
management interests of the University:

2.5.1 The voluntary resignation must result in a vacancy which leads to a net
saving which will contribute to the ability of the relevant unit to keep within
its budget. The OMIS steering group will expect that the total savings will be
at least the equivalent of the cost of PRS and normally should amount to at
least twice those costs;

and 2.5.2 in all cases, the voluntary resignation must be consistent with
operational needs and future plans and be a resignation which would not have
occurred but for the availability of PRS.

2.6 The savings from the vacancy must finance, normally within three years,
the cost of the PRS in respect of the staff member concerned.

2.7 Formal written approval must be given by the OMIS Steering Committee
for all PRS requests.

3. The purchase of the additional pensionable service will be subject to a
maximum which is the lowest of

(a) 10 years (maximum purchase); or

(b) the number of years/days between the proposed retirement
date and the normal retirement age (i.e. 30 September preceding the sixty-sixth
birthday for academic and related staff; or 31 July preceding the sixty-sixth
birthday for non-academic staff).

(c) the shortfall from 40 years' pensionable service at the
proposed retirement date; or

(d) the accrued pensionable service at the proposed retirement
date.


4. Special limits

Special limits upon PRS may apply:

4.1 to members of academic staff moving to a senior academic or related
position elsewhere; and/or

4.2 where arrangements to leave were at an advanced stage before 31 October
2000.

(Provision 4.1 may, for example, restrict PRS in cases where staff are
moving in the course of normal academic promotion or development.)

`Tenure' may apply only to certain members of academic and academic-
related staff. Members of staff wishing to inquire whether for the purposes of
OMIS they are `tenured' may ask, in the first instance, the appointing authority
for their post, but the ruling of the OMIS Steering Committee on whether a
member of staff is `tenured' for these purposes shall prevail and be final.

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 drop-in to 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).
