2. The first call on the net annual income of the fund shall be the support of the
Alexander Library.

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

—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] NAME="1note">

—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] NAME="2note">

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] NAME="3note">

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

(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

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

(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 Ltd.

The University has established a wholly-owned subsidiary company, Oxford
University Consultancy Ltd., 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 Ltd 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 Ltd.
must still follow the internal procedures for University approval of their
outside appointments as outlined in these guidelines; OUC Ltd. will, however,
assist the process on behalf of the individuals concerned.



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.

Change in registration procedures for open access language courses

Faced with overwhelming demand for places on Open Access language
courses, the Language Centre is introducing new procedures for standard
(non-priority) registration during Week 1 of Michaelmas Term. Arrangements
for priority registration remain unchanged. Those requiring a language course
for reasons of study or research may register for courses at any time.
Matriculated students must obtain a priority registration form from the
Language Centre and bring it signed by their tutor or supervisor to register for
a course.

Remaining non-priority places on courses will be allocated on a random
selection basis at the end of Week 1, following the initial registration period
of Monday, 8 October to Wednesday, 10 October. Registration forms may be
handed in at the Language Centre (in person only; no posted, faxed, or
e-mailed registration forms will be accepted) at any time between 10 a.m. and
6 p.m. on these three days and must be checked by a member of Language
Centre staff before acceptance. Registrations received after 6 p.m. on
Wednesday, 10 October, will automatically be allocated to the waiting list for
a course if no places are available. Class lists will be posted at the Language
Centre and on the Language Centre Web site by 12 noon on Friday, 12

The above arrangements do not apply to courses of study within the
programmes of English for Academic Study and English as a Foreign
Language. Arrangements for these programmes remain unchanged from
previous years.
