NEW POLICIES APPROVED BY COUNCIL

Council has recently approved two new policies, covering risk management and value for money. The policies are set out below and are also available on the Web site at htttp://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/councilsec/oxonly/gov/riskpol.shtml or /vfmpol.shtml. Copies of these policies are being circulated to Heads of Divisions and Heads of Departments. Further information on implementation is set out below.

The Risk Management Policy has been drawn up by the University's Risk Management Committee. Full details of the membership of this committee can be found on the University's governance Web site at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/councilsec/oxonly/ gov/risk.shtml. The committee has drawn up a detailed strategy for implementation of the policy and establishment of a risk register. Further information on the work of the Risk Management Committee may be obtained from its secretary, Miss Noon (telephone: (2)7002, e-mail: jennifer.noon@admin.ox.ac.uk).

The Value for Money Policy has been drawn up by the Value for Money Committee. Details of the membership of the Value for Money Committee may be obtained from the University's Web site reference http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/councilsec/oxonly/gov/vfm.shtml. The committee has drawn up a strategy for future work, and further details may be obtained from the secretary of the committee, Max Todd (telephone: (2)80299, e-mail: max.todd@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Risk Management Policy

At its meeting on 11 March 2002, Council agreed the policy set out below in relation to risk management and assessment.

The University of Oxford follows and adopts best practice in the identification, evaluation and control of risks to ensure that, as far as is reasonably practical, risks are eliminated or reduced to an acceptable level. Although it is acknowledged that risks exist and can never be eliminated, it is important that all staff are aware of the nature of risk and the types of risks associated with their area of work. Senior staff accept responsibility for dealing with risks in their areas. Senior management provide support and assistance in the risk assessment and evaluation process.

The University's objectives in relation to risk management are:

—to integrate risk management into the culture of the University;

—to manage risk in accordance with best practice;

—to consider legal compliance as a minimum standard;\ p —to anticipate and respond, wherever possible, to changing social, environmental, and legislative requirements;

—to raise awareness of the need for risk management.

Achievement of these objectives requires:

—ongoing work by a Risk Management Committee which has an advisory role and is accessible to all staff;

—action to demonstrate the application of risk management principles;

—the provision of risk management and risk assessment awareness training;

—the codification of documented procedures for the control of risk and the provision of suitable information, training, and supervision. These will include appropriate incident reporting and recording systems, with investigatory procedures to establish cause and prevent recurrence, and contingency plans in areas where there is potential for an occurrence having a catastrophic effect on the activities of the University;

—effective communication with, and the active involvement of, all members of staff;

—the establishment of monitoring arrangements and appropriate review procedures.

A Risk Management Committee[1] has been established which is responsible to Council for identifying risks across the whole university range of activities, for prioritisation of those risks, for the development of a risk management strategy, and ensuring the implementation and operation of that strategy.

A subgroup of the committee has been established, under the chairmanship of the Registrar, to draw up risk registers and undertake further work on risk identification and risk assessment.

Value for Money Policy

1 Principles

The University is committed to the pursuit of economy, efficiency, and effectiveness as an integral part of its corporate and academic strategy. This is particularly important now that the University has to be able to operate with a long-term reduction in its levels of public funding. Whilst it has a specific responsibility to achieve Value for money (Vfm) from its use of public funds, this principle extends to all sources of funding. Similarly, the responsibility for pursuing Vfm lies with all staff, and not just those with financial duties.

To meet this commitment the University aims to:

—integrate Vfm principles within decision-making processes, particularly in regard to projects or activities with significant financial implications;

—undertake or commission Vfm studies into areas of activity identified as worthy of review;

—adopt recognised good practice where appropriate;

—benchmark the institution's activities against other similar activities and organisations where this is considered useful;

—demonstrate actively to both internal and external observers that the achievement of Vfm is sought in all activities undertaken; and

—ensure that all staff recognise their continuing obligation to seek Vfm as part of their routine activities.

To implement these aims the Vfm committee will:

—seek formal confirmation that Vfm has been taken into account in the planning of all major projects and activities,

—establish and oversee a programme of Vfm studies,

—receive reports on Vfm from divisions and the academic services and support sectors, including libraries, museums, central administration, etc. (referred to collectively hereafter as `the divisions and other equivalent units'),

—consider and approve divisional and other institutional responses to relevant Vfm studies conducted by Hefce and the National Audit Office,

—encourage the adoption of good practice throughout the University and review the reasons for not adopting recognised good practice in any area,

—promote more cost-effective purchasing arrangements, and

—prepare a three-year rolling plan of Vfm work and submit an annual report to Council through its General Purposes Committee.

2 Integration of Vfm principles into decision-making

Vfm must be a routine part of the decision-making process at all levels of management throughout the University. This is particularly important in planning or reviewing activities with significant financial implications. The Vfm committee will seek assurance that Vfm considerations are being given due weight in key areas of expenditure and will raise any concerns with the appropriate decision-making bodies.

As part of this integration of Vfm into routine decision-making, divisions and other equivalent units will be asked to submit a brief report on the application of Vfm principles annually within their five-year plans, detailing measures to improve economy, efficiency, and effectiveness, and quantifying any financial benefits. Reports should draw attention both to existing activities that demonstrate continuing Vfm and to new opportunities for improving Vfm. The Vfm committee will need to be satisfied that Vfm issues are being adequately addressed and that all major areas of expenditure, including staff costs, are being properly scrutinised.

Divisions and other units are well placed to identify opportunities for achieving greater Vfm within their areas of responsibility. They will know what measures are likely to be effective, having regard to their particular circumstances and needs, and how to enlist the support and co-operation of staff.

3 VFM studies

Vfm studies will be undertaken under the auspices of the Vfm committee to assess whether the objectives of a particular programme, project, or activity could be carried out in a more economic, efficient, or effective manner. Priority will be given to areas of significant expenditure which cut across the responsibilities of divisions and departments. Internal auditors have the knowledge, skills, and experience to carry out Vfm studies. The internal audit section will commit a certain number of days a year to Vfm studies, currently set at forty days in the strategic audit plan, as agreed by the Vfm and Audit committees. These studies will be carried out by the internal audit section working on its own or in conjunction with divisions, departments, or other relevant units. Use may also be made of external expertise.

Conducting a Vfm study does not, in itself, demonstrate Vfm: this will be dependent on the results of the study and on any action taken in response to its findings. A Vfm study will normally result in an action plan, agreed with the management of the area being reviewed, including recommendations on how greater Vfm could be achieved, an assessment of the risks involved in not taking action, a date by which agreed actions are to be implemented, and the name of the officer responsible for implementation.

The role of the Vfm committee will be to:

—identify areas for study,

—oversee progress,

—approve the outcome, and, where this affects university policies, make proposals for change to the appropriate authorities for approval,

—monitor the implementation of any recommendations agreed by the University, and

—assess the outcome of studies in terms of improved Vfm.

4 Vfm studies by Hefce and the National Audit Office

The Vfm committee will approve responses to Vfm studies conducted by Hefce and the National Audit Office (NAO) and monitor any follow-up action required.

Hefce carries out sector-wide Vfm studies. Topics examined to date include energy management, treasury management, buildings repairs and maintenance, and IT management. The NAO also investigates subjects relating to higher education. The Vfm committee will receive such reports, in addition to the division or department concerned, and will approve the University's response to the report. It will also seek to benchmark the University's performance against these reports.

The internal Vfm studies, Vfm reports in five-year plans, and external Vfm studies, will enable the Vfm committee to establish a comprehensive record of Vfm initiatives being pursued across the University and to monitor their progress. This will provide the evidence necessary to demonstrate to Hefce and other external observers that the University is committed to Vfm.

5 Dissemination of good practice

Divisions and other units may not always be aware of opportunities to achieve greater Vfm or of the full extent of the potential benefits. The Vfm committee will take the lead in promoting the sharing of good practice throughout the University, where this has implications for Vfm. The adoption of good practice is one way of demonstrating that Vfm has been sought and achieved.

6 Promotion of more cost-effective purchasing arrangements

The Vfm committee will continue to oversee efforts to adopt more cost-effective purchasing arrangements. The implementation of the University's new financial system in 2003 will provide an opportunity to develop further such arrangements with centrally held purchasing information.

7 Implementation

The Vfm committee will prepare a three-year rolling plan to implement this policy. The plan will be updated each year and submitted to Council via the General Purposes Committee. [1] The Risk Management Committee currently comprises: the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Services and University Collections (Chairman); the Registrar; the Director of Finance; the Director of Legal Services; the Director of Health and Safety; the Director of the Occupational Health Service; the University Marshal; the Director of the University Library Services and Bodley's Librarian; the Director of the University Museum of Natural History; representatives from each of the five divisions; college representative; other officers as appropriate.

COMPUTING SERVICES

Academic Computing Development Team: call for proposals, summer 2002

The Academic Computing Development Team invites proposals from Oxford University staff for the development of IT-based teaching or research projects. The ACDT is part of OUCS's Learning Technologies Group and is multidisciplinary. It grew out of the Humanities Computing Development Team which has been running projects for over three years. Proposals are invited from staff members within any division to be developed during the year 2003--4. The ACDT encourages applicants who wish to begin projects with a start date of February 2003 or November 2003.

Projects may be based in any subject area and can have either a teaching or research focus. Examples of the types of projects which might be considered appropriate are: Web-based teaching and learning materials; online dissemination of rare materials; and the design and development of databases or software. Projects may range in size from provision of advice on planning an IT project to the design and development of a whole system. Projects may involve more than one partner including academic, library, museum, and support staff.

The ACDT has already developed a number of successful projects, details of which can be found on the Web at http://acdt.oucs.ox.ac.uk/acdt/projects/. The projects shown on the Web page are mainly in the Humanities area; this is only the second ACDT call for proposals open to all subject areas.

For further details on how to propose a project, and an application form, see http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/acdt/. Questions should be directed to Sophie Clarke, ACDT Project Manager, OUCS, 13 Banbury Road (telephone: Oxford (2)83428, e-mail: sophie.clarke@oucs.ox.ac.uk).

The closing date for proposals is Wednesday, 17 July.

Note: if the project will involve the use of substantial amounts of material held in Oxford libraries, the organisers are strongly encouraged to contact the Oxford Digital Library/Development Fund (telephone: Oxford (2)84454, e-mail: odl@ulib.ox.ac.uk). The ACDT will be working collaboratively with ODL but chiefly on the development of interfaces and learning environments that utilise ODL materials.

Applicants must be expecting to have completed the requirements for their doctoral degree by 1 October 2003. The purpose of the Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship is to enable junior scholars of the highest calibre to undertake further research, and to enhance their academic standing by substantial publication. In making an election the college will be guided by its judgement as to how far the candidate's achievements and prospects will meet the aims of the fellowship, and it anticipates that candidates will not normally be older than thirty. The college is an equal opportunity employer, and consideration will be given to applications submitted by candidates who can demonstrate that the application of this age-limit would be inappropriate in their circumstances.

3. The fellowship is open to men and women. If there are no candidates for the fellowships whom the college judges to be of sufficient merit, the college is not bound to make any election.

4. Application for the fellowship should be made in writing to the Warden on an application form (obtainable from the Warden's Secretary) on or before Friday, 6 September 2002. Applicants are required to submit with their applications: (i) a curriculum vitae; (ii) a thesis abstract; (iii) written work in English of around 10,000 words to serve as evidence of their prowess as researchers (this should be a published paper, an extract from the thesis, or equivalent); (iv) a statement (of not more than 1,000 words) of their proposed course of future research work (candidates' attention is drawn to the importance which the college attaches of submission of a clear and comprehensive research proposal); (v) the names and addresses of two referees who have agreed to give a confidential assessment of the candidate's work. These referees must be asked by the candidate to send their assessments direct to the Warden by 6 September 2002. Candidates who are placed on the `long' short-list will be requested to supply two copies of their thesis.

5. There will be a viva voce examination of selected candidates in the presence of fellows of the college on Saturday, 22 February 2003.

6. If the fellow undertakes a certain amount of lecturing, the fellowship carries a stipend at age twenty-six of £16,580* per annum rising to £26,123* per annum at age thirty-five and above. If not, the stipend is £15,088* per annum rising to £23,772* per annum.

7. A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow will be a member of the governing body and will be entitled to rooms, dinners, and lunches without charge, and a housing allowance for those living out of college in Oxford which is at present £4,075 per annum.

The primary duty of a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow is to pursue a programme of advanced study and research in Oxford, approved by the college and at a level of achievement acceptable to it. Leave of absence to work away from Oxford may be granted on the recommendation of the college's Academic Purposes Committee, where the Committee is satisfied that such leave is necessary for the pursuit of the fellow's programme of research.

The successful candidates will be expected to take up the fellowship on 1 October 2003, or such other date as may be agreed.

8. For fellows with young children there is the possibility of places being available on a paying basis at the University Nursery.

9. Inquiries about the fellowship may be made to the Warden's Secretary, All Souls College, Oxford OX1 4AL (telephone: Oxford (2)79300). See also the college's Web site: http://www.all-souls.ox.ac.uk.

*Reviewed each August.

 


 

Election to Fellowships by Examination

1. There will be an election at All Souls on Saturday, 2 November 2002 to not more than two Fellowships by Examination, if candidates of sufficient merit present themselves.

2. The examination is open to any candidate (male or female) who either
( a) has passed all the examinations required by the University for the degree of BA or
( b) has been duly registered for, or been awarded, a higher degree in the University (including BCL). The college will not normally admit to the Examination, however, candidates who will have passed their twenty-sixth birthday at the time of election, or who will then have completed ten or more terms since they qualified for the degree of BA, or first registered for a higher degree in the University. Candidates who are short-listed may be required to verify their date of birth.

3. The fellowships are for seven years and cannot be extended. They are open to those who intend to pursue an academic career, and the college pays the university fees of fellows registered for a higher degree. They are also open to those who, while intending to take up non-academic work (such as the practice of the law, politics, diplomacy, etc.), nevertheless wish to maintain and strengthen their links with academic life. In the case of the latter category it is possible for those pursuing a non- academic career to comply with the college's residential convention in the first year of fellowship by, for example, spending the weekends during term in college and the weekdays working in London.

4. During the first two years fellows receive a stipend, which they may supplement, of £11,205 per annum, and may be eligible for a housing allowance of £3,559. At the end of that period the fellowship will (with the approval of the college) be extended for a further five years, during which
( a) a fellow who decides to take up or continue non-academic work will receive a stipend of £2,161* per annum;
( b) a fellow who decides to take up or continue academic work will receive a stipend of £15,511* per annum, rising to £19,764* per annum if a certain amount of lecturing is undertaken; otherwise the stipend will be £14,115* per annum rising to £17,985* per annum, plus in each case a housing allowance of £4,075 per annum, if eligible. Academic Fellows may also draw on academic allowances of up to £2,041 per annum. As the fellowships are for fixed terms, the successful applicants will be required to sign a waiver under Section 197 of the Employment Rights Act 1996.

5. A Fellow by Examination will be a member of the governing body and will be entitled to rooms, dinners, and lunches without charge. A fellow is conventionally required to reside (or dine) in college for at least twenty-eight days in each academical term of the first year of tenure; but the college is prepared to consider deferment of this residence in exceptional cases.

6. Prospective candidates should apply to the Warden's Secretary for an application form and further particulars, including a statement of the college's policy on equality of treatment of candidates. See also the college's Web site: http://www.all-souls.ox.ac.uk. Completed forms together with a curriculum vitae should be sent to the Warden not later than 6 September 2002. Candidates must enclose with their application form a letter from the candidate's college—from the Head of House or Senior Tutor—certifying that the applicant is a suitable candidate to sit the Examination. Candidates who wish to be admitted to the Examination notwithstanding non-compliance with the rules as to age and standing should communicate with the Warden. All correspondence should be marked `Fellowship Examination'.

7. The Warden and Chairman of Assistant Examiners will meet candidates, whose applications have been accepted, on Wednesday, 25 September at 4 p.m. and will answer any queries raised by them.

8. The examination will be held in the college hall, starting on 26 September at 9.30 a.m. and ending on 28 September at 12.30 p.m. (except for candidates who take the Classical Studies papers—see para.10 below).

9. The examination will consist of five papers of three hours each:

Two papers in Law, History,** Philosophy, Economics, Politics, English Literature, or Classical Studies;**

Two General Papers;

An Essay.

10. Candidates who take the Classical Studies papers will be required to take a Translation paper at 2 p.m. on Saturday, 28 September. Specimen papers from previous years may be seen in college on application to the Warden's Secretary or Fellows' Secretary.

11. A viva of short-listed candidates will be held in the presence of fellows of the college on Saturday, 26 October, commencing at 10 a.m. All short-listed candidates will be expected to dine in college that night.

* Reviewed each August.

** The History papers will cover: I—political, constitutional, and ecclesiastical history; and II—social, economic, and cultural history. Each paper will contain a section of questions on History of the Ancient World. The two papers on Classical Studies will contain questions on Ancient History and Classical Literature.
