Decree (2): Changes to the schedules relating to the payment
of
departmental allowances

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the General
Board, effects changes with effect from 1 October 1998 to the
schedules relating to the payment of departmental allowances. The
Board has reviewed these schedules and their value and has
concluded
that two additional schedules need to be introduced in order to
provide a higher level of payment to the heads of the largest
departments, and also that an absolute increase, of 10 per cent,
is
needed in all the schedules. The decree therefore provides for
the
new schedules. It also makes the heads of the clinical
departments
and the head of Biological Anthropology eligible for departmental
allowances, and it allocates the headships of the Department of
Chemistry, the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, the
Department of Physics, the Department of Biochemistry, and the
Department of Engineering Science to the two new schedules.

Subject to the approval of the legislation, Council and the
General
Board have agreed that the value of the new allowances should be
set
as follows.

Before the salary award effective from 1 April 1998 the rates
were:


                                   £  
                 Schedule I        6,788  
                 Schedule II       4,502  
                 Schedule III      3,400  
                 Schedule IV       1,726

In relation to these figures, the two new schedules have been set
at
£10,000 and £8,500 respectively. Following the general
salary increase of 3.8 per cent and the decision to make an
increase
in real terms of 10 per cent as well, the new rates from 1
October
1998 will be:

                              £  
             Schedule I        11,421  
             Schedule II        9,708  
             Schedule III       7,753  
             Schedule IV        5,141  
             Schedule V         3,883  
             Schedule VI        1,971

Opportunity is taken also to change the arrangements for paying
departmental allowances when a head of department is on leave.
By
tradition these have been paid both to the acting head and to the
head. This may have been appropriate when most headships were
permanently vested in the holder of a statutory post but
certainly
seems inappropriate now that most headships are held for fixed
periods of years. The decree therefore provides that the head
should
no longer be eligible to receive allowances while on leave,
subject
to the preservation of vested interests by giving a choice
between on
the one hand continuing to receive allowances at the present
rate,
and retaining eligibility for receiving an allowance while on
leave,
and on the other giving up that right and receiving the
appropriate
new level of allowance.

Decree (5): Zaharoff Travelling
Scholarships

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Curators
of
the Taylor Institution and with the concurrence of the Modern
Languages Board and the General Board, amends the terms on which
the
Zaharoff Travelling Scholarships are awarded. There have been
very
few candidates for these awards in recent years, and a
scholarship
was last given in 1992. The curators intend to offer the
scholarship
instead as a one-year graduate studentship tenable in Modern
Languages and retaining a requirement for study in France. The
curators have hitherto been required to determine by regulations
the
detailed conditions governing the awards. The following decree
removes that requirement; in future the curators will publish
from
time to time in the Gazette a notice setting out
such
conditions, the method of application, etc.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations
and
Boards' below.

Decree (11): Abolition of the Special
Diplomas in Social Studies and in Social Administration

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Social
Studies Board and with the concurrence of the General Board,
abolishes the Special Diplomas in Social Studies and in Social
Administration with effect from 1 October 1999. The faculty board
has
reviewed the purpose and standing of these qualifications, which
are
open to non-members of the University, and both it and the
General
Board have consulted Plater and Ruskin Colleges (whose members
have
historically formed the bulk of the candidates) about their
future.
It is clear that the special diplomas are now, with the
development
of other forms of qualification for those with non-conventional
backgrounds, less appropriate than hitherto, and this is
recognised
by Ruskin and Plater Colleges. The University itself has
developed in
recent years through the Department for Continuing Education a
coherent programme of study in the Social Sciences, from access
level
to the Foundation Course in Social and Political Science (which
is
equivalent to the first year of a degree course). The abolition
of
the Special Diplomas will not therefore in any way diminish
opportunities in this subject area offered by the University.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations
and
Boards' below.

Decree (14): Change of name of the
M.Sc. in
Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Mathematical
Sciences Board and with the concurrence of the General Board,
changes
the name of the M.Sc. in Mathematical Modelling and Numerical
Analysis to the M.Sc. in Mathematical Modelling and Scientific
Computing, in order to describe more accurately the type of
applied
numerical analysis covered in the course and to reflect modern
usage.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations
and
Boards' below.

Decree (15): Appointment of examiners
for
the Honour School of English Language and Literature

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the English
Board
and with the concurrence of the General Board, increases from
fifteen
to twenty–two the number of examiners for the Honour School
of
English Language and Literature. The enlargement of the examining
board (and consequent reduction in the number of assessors
required
to assist the marking process) is intended to improve the
efficiency
of the marking of Final Honour School examination scripts,
inter alia so that students may be given
notification of their results at the earliest opportunity, to
provide
a greater degree of consistency in the accountability of those
with
marking duties, and to distribute the marking load more evenly
over a
greater number of post–holders. It is intended that the
enlarged
examining board should comprise groups of specialist examiners
who
will cover the full range of options currently taught in the
syllabus.

Text of Decree (15)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1997,
p.
1040, l. 31, delete `fifteen' and substitute `twenty-two'.

COMPUTING SERVICES


OUCS Helpdesk—options for
departments

Following a Review of OUCS, the General Board and the IT
Committee have decided that the Heads of all RAWP-funded
departments should be given the opportunity to decide how
they wish their staff and graduate students to receive
computing help in IT matters. They could allow continued
use of the HelpDesk services offered by OUCS, or instead
they could provide their own help service and require
their members to rely on that.

The OUCS HelpDesk service has been provided for many
years, which enables computer users to bring questions of
any kind relating to their use of IT, by e-mail, by
phone, or in person; queries are answered by qualified
and experienced IT staff, and referred where necessary to
technical experts for resolution. For these purposes, the
HelpDesk service includes the Microconsulting and
Applications services which provide in-depth help
respectively with microcomputer problems and with
software packages in areas such as statistics, database
and typesetting. The Review Committee believed, however,
that some departments would prefer to provide this
service in-house, or, indeed, already do so, and so were
unfairly penalised by effectively paying for the service
twice. Furthermore, it felt that the right approach to
answering many of these queries should perhaps lie in
dealing with them locally within departments, rather than
from one central point.

Accordingly, that portion of the funding which is
granted by the General Board to support the OUCS HelpDesk
service which relates to RAWP-funded departments will,
from 1 August 1999, be redirected to those departments,
divided approximately according to academic staff
numbers.

These departments are being asked, via their Heads,
if they wish to retain these funds and provide their own
HelpDesk service, or to continue using the OUCS service
as at present and pay the amount back to OUCS. They are
being asked to provide twelve months' notice of their
intentions, with the change not in fact taking place
until 1 August 1999, in order to give OUCS the chance to
adjust its costs, if necessary. It should be noted that
formally registered departmental IT support staff will
continue to have access to the OUCS HelpDesk services.

Note that the services offered to non-RAWP-funded
units (most of the Humanities, many of the Social
Sciences) will not be affected, other than for
undergraduate students.

A further consequence of the Review Report is that
thenceforth, all undergraduate students will have to seek
help from their colleges or departments, not OUCS,
regardless of their discipline or of the above
departmental decisions. Graduate students will be served
in the same way as staff members, viz. the source of
their service will depend on the decision of their
department to opt in or out of using the OUCS
services.

Further details of the proposed new arrangements are
being provided to Heads of Department, and can also be
viewed on the Web at

http://info.ox.ac.uk/oucs/internal/charged-help-service.html

established in 1993 as a successor to the Conference of
University Administrators (CUA) and the Association of
Polytechnic Administrators (APA). It has more than 3,400
members in 180 branches. Membership is open to
individuals involved in any part of the administration or
management of HEIs. AUA organsises branch and regional
events in addition to its national seminars and
conferences.

Members receive free of charge each year:

—a quarterly international journal:
Perspectives: policy and practice in higher
education;

—a quarterly newsletter, Newslink;

—each new title in the AUA's Good Practice
Guide series of booklets
p;
—an annual calender and directory.

Members have the opportunity to benefit from:

—an annual conference—the largest conference in
the HE calendar providing a forum for professional
development and offering over 250 working sessions (held
around Easter); the next one is to be held in Manchester,
28--31 March 1999;

—a range of publications;

—opportunity to foster closer international
links;

—additional benefits, such as a guest lecture to be
hosted by the AUA during the evening of 24 November, to
which all paid-up members will be invited to apply for
tickets. The speaker is Professor Bob Fryer who was
chairman of the Government's National Advisory Group on
Continuing Education and Life-Long Learning. The lecture
will be given at the CVCP in London.

Occasional local events are arranged. The Registrar, Mr
David Holmes, and the Principal of New Hall, Cambridge,
Mrs Anne Lonsdale, former Director of the External
Relations Office in Oxford, have both agreed to give
talks to branch members in 1998--9.

Subscription rates for full members, valid to 31 July
1998, are £30 if paying by direct debit and £35
if paying by cheque (or, for those earning less than
£16,000 a year on 1 August 1997, £20 if paying
by direct debit and £25 if paying by cheque);
members are able to claim tax relief against their
subsriptions. The rates are to increase slightly from 1
August 1998 but joining before then gives membership to
31 July 1999.

Further details and an application form may be obtained
from http://www.man.ac.uk/aua or from the Oxford Branch

RESEARCH AND EQUIPMENT COMMITTEE


Joint Research Equipment Initiative
(JREI) 1999

Eleven applications were submitted to the 1998 JREI by university
departments, compared with twenty-two in 1997. The purpose of
this notice is to alert departments that there will be another
JREI competition in 1999. Details have not yet been confirmed but
HEFCE has indicated that the timescale for next year's exercise
should be similar to that of the 1998 JREI.

Departments may wish to start planning for next year's JREI now,
given that another tight deadline for submissions of bids is
likely. The Research and Equipment Committee hopes to provide
funds to support JREI applications in 1999, subject to the
outcome of its equipment funding bid for 1999–2000.

Details of the 1999 JREI will be disseminated by the committee
as soon as they become available, together with the arrangements
for internal consideration of draft bids. Once they have been
decided, the competition details will also be included within
HEFCE's Web site (see the JREI section under `Council-funded
initiatives'):
http://www.hefce.ac.uk/docs/initiat/current/jrei.htm.

Prospective applicants are also reminded about the rules relating
to discounts for the 1998 JREI, which may well continue for next
year's competition: discounts were not eligible as external
sponsors' contributions unless applicants could demonstrate
genuine collaboration with the external sponsor in the
development of a product (i.e. all partners were expected to make
a genuine contribution to the research project, and benefit from
the participation, and the outputs/outcomes of the project,
either academically or commercially; the project would therefore
not be able to proceed without the involvement of the parties
concerned).

RESEARCH FUNDING FOR THE ARTS AND
HUMANITIES

The following information has been received from the
British Academy:

`The British academy and HEFCE are negotiating to establish a new
Arts and Humanities Research Board, which will replace the HRB.
Once the AHRB is established, it is intended that the Academy and
the new Board will develop complementary roles in the funding of
research in the humanities. The AHRB will be solely responsible
for the funding of research in the creative and performing arts,
including matters that would in other subject areas fall to a
learned society, and the Academy will not seek to develop a role
in this area. In the humanities, the academy will concentrate on
the support of individual scholars in providing small personal
research grants for amounts up to £5,000; postdoctoral
fellowships; research readerships and professorships; overseas
exchange agreements and support for attendance at conferences.
The AHRB will concentrate on the support of postgraduate study
and on the provision of support for research in an institutional
setting, including grants for the employment of research
assistants and fellows, and of research leave. A principal aim
will be to ensure that the division of responsibilities and
activities is clear to the research community on the model of
the complementary roles of the Royal Society and the Research
Councils.

`Information about both continuing schemes and any new schemes
will be advertised in July, along with invitations to apply for
awards.

`Please do not contact the Academy direct, as no further details
are known at present. New information will be placed on the
Academy's Web site as soon as it becomes available, address
http://britac3.britac.ac.uk.

`Please note that information and application forms will be sent
automatically to research offices and Heads of Departments of
Arts and Humanities, when available.'

Note. Although final procedures will obviously depend
on the Academy and AHRB rules, please note that, as with
applications to the research councils and other research funding
bodies, applications for these new schemes should be submitted
to the Research and Commercial Services Office (RCSO) in the
first instance so that costings can be checked and all other
relevant issues identified. The RCSO is available to give advice
and guidance on the preparation of applications (telephone:
(2)70247). Further information will be made available as it is
received, on the RCSO's Web pages:
