2 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Decisions on college associations for joint appointments

Explanatory note

Under the new governance statutes with effect from 1 October 2000, power to
make final decisions on college associations for joint appointments (i.e. for
posts other than chairs and statutory readerships) has been devolved to the
Divisional Boards. The new Council has given further consideration to this
power, in the light of the views expressed by the Hebdomadal Council and the
General Board in Trinity Term 2000 and in particular of the need for decisions
on college associations for these posts to be taken in the knowledge of the
position on such associations across all divisions. Council has concluded that
there is a need for an additional stage to be introduced into the procedures
already agreed so that such an overview may be taken before a final decision
is reached, and therefore promotes the following statute to amend the earlier
legislation.

WHEREAS it is expedient for final decisions on college associations for
joint appointments to be made above divisional level, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS
AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. V, Sect. II, § 1, cl. 1 (f) (Statutes, 1997,
p. 40, as amended by the Statute approved by Congregation on 29 June 1999,
Gazette, Vol. 129, pp. 1323, 1482, and by Statute (1) approved by
Congregation on 23 May 2000, Gazette, Vol. 130, pp. 1201, 1230),
after `the settling of college associations for new and vacant academic posts'
insert `, subject to ratification by a joint university/college panel'.

CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a flysheet
circulated with the Gazette (a) on matters before
Congregation, or Convocation in regard to the election of the Professor of
Poetry, or (b) relating to matters of general interest to the
University, subject to the following general conditions:

(i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the opinion of the
Vice-Chancellor and Proctors might be defamatory or otherwise illegal;

(ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the University and its employees,
without prior consultation with the signatories, to publish an apology in
respect of any statement in a flysheet which is complained of as defamatory
or otherwise illegal (whether or not the statement can be shown to be true);

(iii) the signatories shall jointly and severally indemnify the University
and its employees against any costs or damages payable in respect of their
flysheet and, unless a Queen's Counsel (to be mutually agreed on by the
signatories and the University) shall advise within four months of the making
of any claim in respect of a flysheet that any proceedings could be contested
with the probability of success, such damages shall include any sum paid by
the University in settlement of any claim arising out of the flysheet;

(iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only (though text may appear
on both sides of the leaf); the text shall include the name and college or
department of each of the signatories;

(v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be delivered to the

Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday of the week in which circulation is
desired; it shall be accompanied by an indemnity in accordance with condition
(iii) above drawn up on a form obtainable from the Registrar and signed by
each of the signatories of the flysheet; the Registrar shall be informed at the
same time which of the signatories is to be notified whether the
Vice-Chancellor and Proctors have authorised circulation;

(vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production by the University
Press of copies of a flysheet the circulation of which has been duly
authorised.

Though every effort will be made to circulate on the day desired
flysheets so received, it must be understood that this cannot be guaranteed.

(a) Matters before Congregation or Convocation

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal agendum for Congregation,
or for Convocation in regard to the election of the Professor of Poetry, or the
subject of a report published in the Gazette, the production costs
will be met from university funds.

(b) Matters of general interest to the University

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal agendum for
Congregation or the subject of a report published in the Gazette,
the Vice-Chancellor will decide whether it is of sufficient general interest to
warrant circulation with the Gazette; the production costs for such
a flysheet will be the responsibility of the signatories.

Oxford University Student Union

The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford University Student
Union may have flysheets circulated with the Gazette under the
arrangements and subject to the conditions set out above, provided that:

(1) the number of names to be included on the flysheet under condition
(iv) shall be not less than a majority of the total number of members of the
Executive or the Graduate Committee of OUSU, as the case may be, and each
of the persons named shall sign the indemnity required under condition (v);

(2) the maximum number of flysheets to be circulated as of right,
whether on matters before Congregation (to be paid for by the University) or
on matters of general interest to the University (to be paid for by OUSU and
to be subject to the Vice-Chancellor's decision as prescribed under
(b) above) shall be three per term for each of these bodies, save
that the Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further flysheets.

Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive and the Graduate Committee
of OUSU may also support flysheets signed by not less than ten members of
Congregation.

POLICY AND RULES GOVERNING IT USE

The following policy statement, rules, and guidelines on the use of the
University's IT facilities are published by the IT Committee with the approval
of Council. They may also be found at http://www.ox.ac.uk/it/rules/.


Policy Statement on Computer Use, Monitoring, and
Surveillance

University IT and network facilities are provided for use in accordance with
the following policy set by Council.

The University provides computer facilities and access to its computer
networks only for purposes directly connected with the work of the
University and the colleges and with the normal academic activities of their
members. Individuals have no right to use university facilities for any other
purpose. The University reserves the right to exercise control over all
activities employing its computer facilities, including examining the content of
users' data, such as e-mail, where that is necessary:

(a) for the proper regulation of the University's facilities;

(b) in connection with properly authorised investigations in
relation to breaches or alleged breaches of provisions in the University's
statutes, decrees, and regulations, and the rules on computer use published
by the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Committee
[1]
from
time to time; or

(c) to meet legal requirements. Such action will only be
undertaken in accordance with guidelines laid down and published from time
to time by the ICT Committee.


Rules Governing IT Use

The following rules govern all use of university IT and network facilities,
whether accessed by University property or otherwise.

(1) Use is subject at all times to such monitoring as may be necessary for
the proper management of the network, or as may be specifically authorised
in accordance with rules laid down from time to time by the ICT Committee for
the purpose of investigation of allegations of activity in breach of the law, or
of the University's statutes, decrees, and regulations.

(2) Persons may only make use of university facilities with proper
authorisation. Proper authorisation in this context means prior authorisation
by the appropriate officer, who shall be the Director of OUCS or his or her
nominated deputy, in the case of services under the supervision of OUCS, or
the nominated college or departmental officer in the case of services provided
by a college or department. Any authorisation is subject to compliance with
these rules, and with the University's statutes, decrees, and regulations, and
will be considered to be terminated by any breach or attempted breach of
these rules.

(3) Authorisation will be specific to an individual. Any password,
authorisation code, etc., given to a user will be for his or her use only, and
must be kept secure and not disclosed to or used by any other person.

(4) Users are not permitted to use university IT or network facilities for
any of the following:

(a) any unlawful activity;

(b) the creation, transmission, storage, downloading or display
of any offensive, obscene, indecent, or menacing images, data or other
material, or any data capable of being resolved into such images or
material;[2]

(c) the creation or transmission of material which is designed or
likely to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety, or to harass
another person;

(d) the creation or transmission of defamatory material about any
individual or organisation;

(e) the sending of any e-mail that does not correctly identify the
sender of that e-mail or attempts to disguise the identity of the computer
from which it was sent;

(f) the sending of any message appearing to originate from
another person, or otherwise attempting to impersonate another person;

(g) the transmission, without proper authorisation, of e-mail to
a large number of recipients, unless those recipients have indicated an
interest in receiving such e-mail, or the sending or forwarding of e-mail
which is intended to encourage the propagation of copies of itself;

( h) the creation, access or transmission of material in such a
way as to infringe a copyright, moral right, trade mark, or other intellectual
property right;

(i) private profit, except to the extent authorised under the user's
conditions of employment or other agreement with the University or a college;
or commercial purposes without specific authorisation;

(j) gaining or attempting to gain unauthorised access to any
facility or service within or outside the University, or making any attempt to
disrupt or impair such a service;

(k) the deliberate or reckless undertaking of activities such as
may result in the following:

(i) the waste of staff effort or network resources, including time on any
system accessible via the University's network;

(ii) the corruption or disruption of other users' data;

(iii) the violation of the privacy of other users;

(iv) the disruption of the work of other users;

(v) the introduction or transmission of a virus into the network.

(l) activities not directly connected with employment, study or
research in the University or the colleges (excluding reasonable and limited
use for social and recreational purposes where not in breach of these rules
or otherwise forbidden) without proper authorisation.

(5) Software and computer-readable datasets made available on the
university network may only be used subject to the relevant licensing
conditions, and, where applicable, to the Code of Conduct published by the
Combined Higher Education Software Team (CHEST).

(6) Users shall treat as confidential any information which may become
available to them through the use of such facilities and which is not on the
face of it intended for unrestricted dissemination; such information shall not
be copied, modified, disseminated, or used either in whole or in part without
the permission of the person or body entitled to give it;

(7) No user may use IT facilities to hold or process data relating to a
living individual save in accordance with the provisions of current data
protection legislation (which in most cases will require the prior consent of
the individual or individuals whose data is to be processed). Any person
wishing to use IT facilities for such processing is required to inform the
University Data Protection Officer in advance and to comply with any guidance
given concerning the manner in which the processing may be carried out.

(8) Any person responsible for the administration of any university or
college computer or network system, or otherwise having access to data on
such a system, shall comply with the provisions of the `Statement of IT
Security and Privacy Policy', as published by the ICT Committee from time to
time.

(9) Users shall at all times endeavour to comply with guidance issued from
time to time by OUCS to assist with the management and efficient use of the
network.

(10) Connection of computers, whether college, departmental, or privately
owned, to the university network is subject to the following additional
regulations:

(a) Computers connected to the university network may only use
network identifiers which follow the University's naming convention, and are
registered with OUCS. In particular all such names must be within the domain
.ox.ac.uk. Any exception to this must be authorised by the Director of OUCS,
and may be subject to payment of a licence fee.

(b) The administrators of computers connected to the university
network are responsible for ensuring their security against unauthorised
access, participation in `denial of service' attacks, etc. The University may
temporarily bar access to any computer or sub-network that appears to pose
a danger to the security or integrity of any system or network, either within
or outside Oxford, or which, through a security breach, may bring disrepute
to the University.

(c) Providers of any service must take all reasonable steps to
ensure that that service does not cause an excessive amount of traffic on the
University's internal network or its external network links. The University
may bar access at any time to computers which appear to cause unreasonable
consumption of network resources.

(d) Hosting of Web pages on computers connected to the
university network is permitted subject to the knowledge and consent of the
department or college responsible for the local resources, but providers of
these Web pages must endeavour to comply with guidelines published by OUCS
or other relevant authorities. It is not permitted to offer commercial services
through Web pages supported through the university network, or to provide
`home-page' facilities for any commercial organisation, except with the
permission of the Director of OUCS. This permission may require the payment
of a licence fee.

(e) No computer connected to the university network may be
used to give any person who is not a member or employee of the University
or its colleges access to any network services outside the department or
college where that computer is situated. Certain exceptions may be made, for
example members of other UK universities, official visitors to a department or
college, or for those paying a licence fee. Areas of doubt should be discussed
with the Registration Manager at OUCS.

(11) In the event that a user is thought to be in breach of one or more
of these rules or of university statutes, decrees, or regulations he or she
shall be reported to the appropriate officer who may recommend to the
appropriate university or college authority that proceedings be instituted
under either or both University or college disciplinary procedures. Access to
facilities may be withdrawn pending a determination, or may be made subject
to such conditions as the appropriate officer shall think proper in the
circumstances.


Guidelines for Examining Users' Data

(1) All staff of an IT facility who are given privileged access to information
available through that facility must respect the privacy and security of any
information not intended for public dissemination, that becomes known to them
by any means, deliberate or accidental.

(2) System Administrators (i.e. those responsible for the management,
operation or maintenance of computer systems) have the right to access users'
files and examine network traffic, but only if necessary in pursuit of their
role as System Administrators. They must endeavour to avoid explicitly
examining the contents of users' files without proper authorisation.

(3) If it is necessary for a System Administrator to inspect the contents
of a user's files, the following procedure must be followed. Normally, the
user's permission should be sought. Should such access be necessary without
seeking the user's permission, it should, wherever possible, be approved by
an appropriate authority prior to inspection. If it has not been possible to
obtain prior permission, any access should be reported to the user or to an
appropriate authority as soon as possible.

(4) For the purposes of these guidelines appropriate authority is defined
as follows:

(a) in the case of any university-owned system, whether central
or departmental: if the files belong to a student, the Proctors; if the files
belong to a Senior Member, the Registrar or his or her nominee; or, if the
files belong to an employee who is not a Senior Member, the Head of the
Department, House, or other unit to which the employee is responsible, or his
or her delegated representative;

(b) in the case of a departmental system, either those named in
(a), or, in all circumstances, the Head of Department or his or her
delegated representative;

(c) in the case of a college system, the Head of House or his or
her delegated representative.

user has obtained prior authority for the particular activity in the manner set
out from time to time by the ICT Committee.

Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

Members of the University are reminded that all applications for
external research funding support must be endorsed on behalf of
the University through the RSO before they are despatched to the
sponsor, whether or not this is required by the funding body.

The reasons for the requirement are (i) to ensure that the
funds being requested are adequate for the purpose and that the
costing rules of the sponsor have been applied correctly, and
(ii) to ensure that the University could undertake the
obligations arising from an award and that these do not
contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for
research grants should submit the original plus one copy of their
application, together with a completed copy of the University's
outside grants form, to the Research Services Office, Wellington
Square (telephone (2)70146), leaving three clear working days for
it to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature of
contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3,
provides that `no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in connection with
any department of or under the control of the University shall
in connection with any invention, discovery, or patent, or ...
process, or manufacture have authority to make any
representations on behalf of the University or to be concerned
in any transaction whatsoever in connection therewith on behalf
of the University except with the express consent of Council'.

The Research Services Office has been given authority to
approve research funding applications to external sponsors and
the terms of contracts in straightforward cases under this
provision; in more complicated cases, specific authority is
necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored
research should be directed to the Research Services Office,
whose staff would be pleased to help.

SIR JOHN HICKS FUND

The Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund invites applications
from members of the University for grants towards the costs of
research in economic history. Applications will be considered
from undergraduates, graduate students, and members of academic
staff, and may related to research into the economic history of
any period or country.

Applicants should (a) provide sufficient information
about the general nature of their research to establish that it
falls within the field of economic history; and (b)
specify the precise nature and cost of the expenditure for which
a grant is requested. They should also give the name of one
referee who might be consulted by the committee.

It is intended by the committee that grants should normally be
made for sums of up to £250, though this may on occasion be
exceeded. Retrospective grants will be made only in exceptional
circumstances.

The committee will consider applications twice in each year. The
closing date for the first round is Monday of the third week of
Hilary Term, and for the second round Monday of the third week
of Trinity Term. Applications should be sent to Mrs E.A.
Macallister, Secretary of the Committee for the Sir John Hicks
Fund, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.
