SOCIAL SCIENCES BOARD

Decree

The Social Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards
Committee of Council, has made the following decree, to come into effect on 3 May.


Decree (1): Revision of the IT course in PPE

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Social Sciences Board, with the approval of the
Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, revises the arrangements for the
Information Technology course in PPE. The current regulations for the Final Honour School
provide for the examiners to receive records showing whether candidates have pursued a
course in IT to an adequate standard. The examiners deduct 1 per cent of the aggregate mark
of those candidates who have failed to reach an adequate standard.

Following a review of the IT course after its first two years of operation, it has now
been agreed that the course should take place in the first year rather than the second year,
and
that satisfactory completion of the course (comprising one day of teaching and a project
requiring no more than two or three days) should be a requirement for entering for the Final
Honour School examinations but should not form part of the assessment for the School.

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

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 431, l. 12, after `unless he
or she' insert
`has completed
a designated course in Information Technology to an adequate standard and has'.

2 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 2004.

MEDICAL SCIENCES BOARD

Decree

The Medical Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards
Committee of Council, has made the following decree, to come into effect on 3 May.


Decree (3): Revision of the decrees governing the
Second BM
Examination

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Medical Sciences Board, with the approval of the
Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, provides for changes to the Second
BM Examination. These changes are made in part in response to the recommendations in the
Board's strategic document `Plan for Teaching in Years 4, 5, and 6' (February 2001); in part
in response to feedback from staff and students; and in part in response to the comments
made
by the Education Committee of the General Medical Council, which reviewed the course in
February 2001. The changes allow for a period of preparation for work as a Pre-registration
House Officer and improve the opportunities available to study topics of interest in depth
through the introduction of a course in Vocational Studies. The year-three core curriculum
will be taught during a General Clinical Studies Course.

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

Text of Decree (3)

of Congregation as soon as possible after the closing date for nominations, and
which, after completion, must be received by the Head Clerk not later than
4 p.m. on 23 May).

Notes on the bodies concerned

The
Buildings and Estates Subcommittee of the Planning and Resource Allocation
Committee
is responsible, under Council’s Planning and Resource Allocation
Committee, for proposals for the strategic development of the University’s
functional estate, taking account of institutional plans and environmental,
planning, and heritage issues; the acquisition, leasing, disposal, and
allocation of functional land and property; and all proposals for capital
building projects for functional use, including the initiation and management
of the design and construction of all major projects. The subcommittee has
control of a substantial budget.

Council
is the University’s chief executive body, with statutory responsibility for the
administration of the University (both academic and other) and for the
management of its finances and property, as well as dealing with the
relationship between the University and all external bodies. Council submits
resolutions and statutes to Congregation for approval, and has the power to
make decrees and regulations (which may be opposed in Congregation). Council
meets three times a term, and twice in the Long Vacation. It has a number of
committees (including Educational Policy and Standards, General Purposes,
Personnel, and Planning and Resource Allocation), on which its members are
expected to serve if invited to do so.

The
Curators of the University Libraries
are responsible to Council for
ensuring that provision is made for the University’s library and information
requirements for teaching and research, and that the University’s major
research libraries are maintained as a national and international scholarly
resource. The curators have control of a substantial budget.

The
Curators of the University Parks
are responsible, under Council, for the
management of the Parks and of adjacent land owned by the University, including
the appointment of the Superintendent of the Parks, and for their finances.
They are also responsible for the maintenance both of most other gardens
attached to university buildings and of a number of college gardens. (The
sports facilities in the Parks are, subject to the authority of the curators,
in the charge of the Sports Strategy Committee.)

The Visitatorial Board is
responsible for making recommendations to the Vice-Chancellor (or other
appropriate officer) on serious disciplinary cases involving members of the
academic or academic-related staff. (It does not have responsibility for
dealing with incapacity on medical grounds, or complaints against the Vice-Chancellor
himself or herself.) Four members of the board, as from time to time
constituted to consider an individual case, are selected by lot from a panel of
twelve persons elected by Congregation. The board is chaired by a person with
professional legal experience who is appointed by the High Steward of the
University.

PROPOSALS FOR HONORARY DEGREES TO BE
CONFERRED AT THE ENCAENIA IN 2003, AND FOR DEGREES BY DIPLOMA

Council's Advisory Committee for Degrees by Diploma and Encaenia Honorary Degrees
gives
preliminary consideration both to proposals received from members of Congregation for the
conferment of degrees upon royal personages and heads of state on occasions other than
Encaenia, and to proposals for the conferment of Encaenia honorary degrees. The current
membership of the committee is: Professor P.A. Slack, Principal of Linacre College,
Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Services and University Collections) (chairman); Dr S.R.
Parkinson, Linacre (Assessor 2002–3, ex officio); Mr B.R.
Ward-Perkins,
Trinity College (Assessor 2001–2, ex officio); Professor J. Griffin,
Balliol
College (Public Orator, ex officio); Sir Alan Budd, Provost of Queen's;
Dame
Fiona Caldicott, Principal of Somerville; Professor A. Cameron, Warden of Keble; Professor
D.J.H. Cockayne, Linacre College; Professor K. Davies, Hertford; Sir Marrack Goulding,
Warden of St Antony's College; Professor N.J. Hitchin, New College; Professor H. Lee,
New
College.

Members of Congregation who wish to make suggestions to the committee about honorary
degrees to be conferred at the Encaenia in 2003 or degrees by diploma are asked to do so
by
sending in proposals which provide information under the following headings:

name of nominee;

brief biographical details;

reason for nomination.

Proposals should be sent to Miss Noon, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1
2JD, under strictly confidential cover, not later than Friday, 3 May
2002.

Members of Congregation wishing to suggest candidates are asked in particular to note
the following points:

(a) under Council's standing orders, no member of Council or of the
advisory
committee shall forward to that committee or propose directly to Council the name of any
person for any honorary degree unless he or she is prepared personally to recommend that
the
conferment of such a degree be seriously considered;

(b) while informal soundings within the University on any proposal
will often
be desirable, every effort should be made to ensure that publicity is not at any stage given
to
any proposal for the conferment of an honorary degree.

The Advisory Committee will report to Council just before the beginning of Michaelmas
Term, submitting a short-list of candidates for further consideration. Council will then decide
which proposals should be referred to its Committee on Honorary Degrees. The final list of
proposed honorands, drawn up by Council in the light of the latter committee's report, will
be submitted to Congregation for approval in accordance with the requirements of Tit. II,
Sectt. VI and VIII (Statutes, 2000, pp. 14–16).

Details of those on whom degrees by diploma and honorary degrees have been conferred in
the years from 1992 are set out in pp. 443–8 of the University

APPROVAL TO HOLD OUTSIDE
APPOINTMENTS


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 8 lectures in any year of office;

—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]

—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.

Return to List of Contents of this section


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]
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: Oxford (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: Oxford
(2)70143) or on the Research Services Web site at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/agreements/pcaform.htm.

(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 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: Oxford
(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: Oxford (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.

Return to List of Contents of this section


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 the 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 http://www.ox.ac.uk/it/rules/rules.html.

(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.

Footnotes

[1]
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.

DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS


Doctoral Studentship Scheme

The Department of Economics is pleased to introduce a
new scheme to help the funding of graduate students
with Oxford D.Phil. status, or those who will hold
that from 1 October 2002. The department is initially
offering up to four such awards.

Each award offers funding of £8,000 per annum
for two years. A condition of the award is that
holders will be required to undertake teaching duties
for the department or a college of four hours per week
during term, as specified by the Head of Department
(or Senior Tutor in respect of the college-associated
studenships). From 1 October 2002, both Lincoln
College and University College have expressed their
willingness to participate in the department's scheme.
Where a fees-only award permits their doing so,
successful candidates may simultaneously hold a
doctoral studentship.

Applicants should send three copies of their
CURRICULUM VITAE and the names of two
referees, one of whom must be their doctoral
supervisor, to the Administrator, Department of
Economics, Manor Road Building, Oxford OX13 UQ (e-
mail: gillian.coates@economics.ox.ac.uk), by 14 May.
Applicants should ensure that their referees write
directly to the department by the closing date.
