HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 9 June


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into
effect on 27 June.

List of the decrees:



Decree (1): Establishment of
Value for Money Committee

Explanatory note

Following the issue by HEFCE in 1993 of an Audit Code of
Practice which included the requirement that individual
institutions should promote value for money (VFM), a VFM
Steering Group was established within the University,
comprising Dr J.S. Knowland (chairman), Mr R.B. Allan (a
retired partner of the University Auditors, the
accountants KPMG), Dr E.W. Gill, and Dr J. Norbury. That
group has recommended, and Council has agreed, that the
group should now be reconstituted as a formal standing
committee of Council, established by decree, and the
following decree provides accordingly. Council wishes to
emphasise that, while proper arrangements must be seen to
be in place to improve economy, efficiency, and
effectiveness in order to comply with the HEFCE code of
practice, it sees the primary reason for the planned VFM
work as being that this is intended to bring substantial
financial benefits to the University and improvements in
the services available to its members.

It is intended that the VFM Committee should draw up a
five-year strategic programme of work, and annual plans,
in the same way as the Audit Committee does for the work
of Internal Audit. In parallel, one or two initial
studies are being set in hand in order to provide
experience of individual VFM projects and to guide the
preparation of the strategic plan.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. I
(Statutes, 1995, p. 214), insert new §
20 as follows and renumber existing § 20 (as
renumbered by Decree (1) of 3 October 1996 and Decree (1)
of 20 March 1997, Gazette, pp. 54, 882) as
§ 21:

`§ 20. Committee on Value for Money

1. There shall be a Committee on Value for Money
(VFM), which shall consist of:

(1) a person appointed by the Vice-Chancellor as
chairman of the committee;

(2)--(6) five persons appointed by Council.

The committee may co-opt up to two additional members.
The members of the committee shall hold office for three
years, except that casual vacancies shall be filled for
the unexpired period of the member demitting office, and
shall be re-eligible provided always that no person shall
serve on the committee for more than six years in total.
The persons appointed or co-opted need not be members of
the University.

2. The committee shall be responsible for conducting a
programme of value-for-money initiatives to identify the
arrangements which the University needs to put in place
to improve economy, efficiency, and effectiveness; for
advising Council on the results of such studies; and for
recommending appropriate action.

3. In discharging its responsibilities the committee
shall pay particular regard to two main areas, namely:

(a) an overview of the University's structure
and procedures for obtaining VFM. This shall cover the
methods of setting policy objectives, allocating
resources, considering alternatives, evaluating the
success of policies, budgeting, and planning control over
the overall use of resources; it shall also include
reviews of the University as an organisation and of its
administrative information systems;

(b) individual studies of specific areas,
functions, or services. Such studies may be
across-the-board in nature and cover such areas as,
amongst others, treasury management, purchasing, computer
maintenance, estate management, energy conservation,
minor works, and travel and subsistence; they shall test
the effectiveness of the University's VFM measures and
shall be designed with the objective of leading to
savings or improvements in the areas studied.'

2 This decree shall have immediate
effect, provided that the initial periods of office of
the members of the committee shall be so varied as to
procure a regular rotation of subsequent appointments.

    1 Promulgation of Statutes

    Statute (1): Removal of an anomaly

    Explanatory note

    The following statute adds to the list of degrees which
    qualify their holders, if otherwise eligible, for
    membership of a faculty the recently introduced degrees
    of M.Biochem., M.Chem., M.Earth Sc., M.Eng., M.Math., and
    M.Phys. The need for this amendment was previously
    overlooked.

    (1) WHEREAS it is expedient to make a
    consequential amendment to an existing statute which has
    been overlooked in recent legislation, THE UNIVERSITY
    ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

    Statute (2): Role and responsibilities of the Registrar

    Explanatory note

    In anticipation of the retirement on 31 March 1998 of the
    present holder of the office of Registrar of the
    University, Dr A.J. Dorey, Council has set up a committee
    under the chairmanship of the Principal of Linacre to
    review that office. The committee has recommended
    (inter alia), and Council has agreed, that the
    present statute setting out the Registrar's duties, which
    is largely restricted to a list of the original
    record-keeping functions of the office, should be revised
    so as to give a fuller description of the principal
    functions of the holder, which now include: the provision
    of advice on strategic policy to the Vice-Chancellor and
    Council; management and professional development of the
    Central Administration; promoting communication within
    Oxford; and conducting relationships between the
    University and external bodies, especially funding
    bodies. The following statute provides accordingly. At
    the same time, the detailed statutory prescription of the
    records which the Registrar must keep has been reduced,
    since the review committee and Council consider it more
    appropriate that these should in future be set out only
    in the relevant decrees and regulations.

    The following statute also deletes cl. 17 of the
    existing statute, which requires the University to
    provide an official residence for the Registrar and
    requires the Registrar to live in that residence. The
    present Registrar is dispensed ad hominem from
    this requirement (Statutes, 1995, p. 523),
    and Council has agreed, on the review committee's
    recommendation, that the requirement should be rescinded
    and that in future a Registrar should be eligible for
    assistance with housing costs on the same basis as
    incoming professorial appointees (see
    Gazette No. 4411, 3 October 1996, p. 60).

    (2) WHEREAS it is expedient to revise the
    statutory statement of the role and responsibilties of
    the Registrar, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

    1 In Tit. IX, Sect. VII
    (Statutes, 1995, p. 68), delete cll. 1--11
    and substitute:

    `1. The Registrar shall be appointed by Council.

    2. The Registrar shall act as principal adviser on
    strategic policy to the Vice-Chancellor and to Council,
    and shall ensure effective co-ordination of advice from
    other officers to the Vice-Chancellor, Council, and other
    university bodies.

    3. The Registrar shall be the secretary of
    Congregation and of Council. He or she shall also be
    responsible for providing the secretary of any committee
    or body set up by Congregation or Council under the
    provisions of any statute or decree, which has no
    executive officer.

    4. The Registrar shall, under the Vice-Chancellor, be
    the head of the central administrative services of the
    University, and shall be responsible for the management
    and professional development of their staff and for the
    development of other administrative support.

    5. The Registrar shall, under the direction of the
    Vice- Chancellor, be responsible for overseeing the
    University's external relations and for communications
    which express the general policy of the University.

    6. The Registrar shall have such other functions and
    powers as are or shall be assigned to him or her by the
    statutes or by the Vice-Chancellor under the provisions
    of Sect. III, cl. 3 above.

    7. The Registrar shall be entitled to receive the
    papers of every committee or other body set up by or
    under the authority of the statutes and decrees, and the
    Registrar or his or her nominee may attend or speak
    (though not vote) at any meeting.

    8. The Registrar shall be responsible, as specified by
    Council by decree, for ensuring the maintenance and
    dissemination of university records and registers, for
    furnishing certificates of matriculation, graduation, and
    the results of university examinations, and for
    university publications.'

    Statute (3): Hope Fund

    Explanatory note

    In 1849 the University accepted a gift of the
    entomological collection, library of natural history,
    plates, engravings, and other articles and effects from
    The Revd Frederick William Hope and established a body of
    Hope Curators to manage these collections. In 1860 and
    1862 the University accepted monetary benefactions from
    Mr Hope and Mrs Ellen Hope respectively to endow a Hope
    Professorship of Zoology and to support the collections.
    Under the terms of these benefactions, augmented in 1909
    by a gift from Dr George Blunsdell Longstaff to support
    the Hope Professorship or other purposes connected with
    the Hope Zoological Collections or Library,
    eight-thirteenths of the income of the Hope Fund were to
    be used to support the Hope Professorship,
    three-thirteenths to support the Keepership of the Hope
    Collection of Engraved Portraits (which has for many
    years been merged with the Keepership of the Department
    of Western Art in the Ashmolean Museum), one-thirteenth
    on the entomological collection, and one-thirteenth on
    the collection of engraved portraits.

    That portion of the income from the Hope Fund which
    is available to support the chair is no longer sufficient
    for the purpose, and in 1995 Council and the General
    Board agreed, on the recommendation of the faculty board,
    indefinitely to suspend the Hope Professorship of Zoology
    (Entomology), which had fallen vacant, and to establish
    instead a Professorship of Zoology, the cost of which
    would be borne from general university funds (see
    Gazette No. 4367, 8 June 1995, p. 1248).

    The following statute provides for alternative uses
    of the Hope Fund within the general field of the support
    of the Hope Collections. In addition, in view of the fact
    that the Hope Curators' responsibilities have passed to
    other university bodies, Council has agreed, on the
    recommendation of the Biological Sciences Board and with
    the concurrence of the General Board, that the curators
    should now be formally discharged. The decree to be made
    by Council if the statute is approved effects the
    necessary changes in existing legislation consequential
    upon the discharge of the curators and the indefinite
    suspension of the Hope Professorship.

    (3) WHEREAS it is expedient to provide for
    alternative uses of the Hope Fund within the general

    Council has established a committee to review development
    activity with the following terms of reference:

    1 To review in broad terms the overall
    aims and strategy of the University (including colleges)
    for `development' (meaning thereby fund-raising and
    friend-raising) over the next five to ten years in the
    light of:

    (a) experience to date since the launch of
    the Campaign for Oxford in 1988, including funds raised;

    (b) the resources allocated to the activity
    by the University both in Campaign mode and thereafter,
    i.e. after October 1994;

    (c) the resources currently being allocated
    to this activity by colleges;

    (d) the improved arrangements now being
    developed through the Planning Subcommittee of the
    Resources Committee for the determination of university
    priorities.

    2 As part of the review under 1 to
    give consideration to, and if appropriate make
    recommendations on, the following:

    (a) the role of the President of the
    Development Programme;

    (b) the general structure of the Development
    Office (including the North American and Japan Offices);

    (c) the relationship of the Development
    Office with the External Relations and Research and
    Commercial Services Offices as regards fund-raising and
    friend-raising and the extent to which their activities
    impinge on one another;

    (d) the relationship of the Development
    Office with departments and faculties as regards fund-
    raising and friend-raising;

    (e) the interaction between the Development
    Office/departments/faculties and colleges following the
    establishment of the Joint Committee for the Co-
    ordination of University and College Fund-raising;

    (f) possible ways of improving use of
    existing resources for fund-raising and friend-raising
    (university and college) and of maximising the return
    therefrom;

    (g) the identification of additional
    resources for fund-raising and friend-raising.

    3 To report to Council by its meeting
    on 22 September 1997, and thereafter to the Conference of
    Colleges.

    The membership of the review committee is as follows:

    ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

    2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

    Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the
    University, was established in 1988. The company has been
    formed to exploit know-how arising out of research funded
    by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
    funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The
    function of the company is to ensure that the results of
    research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the inventors,
    who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

    Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums
    and/or royalties for the use of know-how arising out of
    research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property of
    the University by setting up individual companies using
    venture capital or development capital funds.

    Isis'
    services are also available to individuals who wish to
    exploit the results of research supported by non-Research
    Council sources, when there are no prior conditions on
    the handling of the intellectual property rights. Isis
    Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-seedcorn fund
    for paying the costs of protecting intellectual property
    rights and for taking work to a stage where its potential
    can be assessed.

    Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new
    ideas can be developed for market requirements. The
    company has established the Oxford Innovation Society for
    major industrial companies, so that they can have a
    window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to license
    and invest where appropriate.

    A brochure explaining Isis' activities is
    available. Please contact the above address, or the
    telephone and fax numbers given below.

    Members of the University should contact the
    Managing Director if they wish to take advantage of the
    services that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax:
