Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Clinical Medicine Board and with the concurrence of the General Board, establishes the post of (non- executive) Dean of Clinical Medicine in place of the current Directorship of Planning and Development. The Dean will be responsible to the Clinical Medicine Board. This is an interim arrangement to be filled on a fixed-term (three-year) basis in the first instance pending further discussion within the faculty and the central bodies. At the same time opportunity is taken also to delete references to the now defunct Regional Health Authority in the decree governing the composition of the Clinical Medicine Board.

Text of Decree (1)

`(7) Dean of Clinical Medicine.'

4 In Ch. IV (p. 338), delete Sect. VIII and substitute:

`Section VIII. Deanship of Clinical Medicine

1. The Dean of Clinical Medicine shall be appointed by the Board of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine on such conditions as to duties and tenure as the board may determine, provided that

(a) the appointment or reappointment of the Dean and the conditions determined by the faculty board shall be subject to the approval of the General Board;

(b) the appointment or reappointment of the Dean shall be made on the recommendation of a committee appointed by the faculty board which may include persons not being members of the board.

2. The duties of the Dean shall be to act as an officer of the Medical School responsible to the Board of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine and to perform such administrative duties as the board may from time to time determine.'

Key to Decree (1)

Cl. 1 substitutes the Dean for the Director of Planning and Development as an ex officio member of the Clinical Medicine Board.

Cl. 2 deletes provision for a lay member of the faculty board appointed by the former Oxford RHA while retaining the provision for such a member appointed by the Oxfordshire Health Authority.

Cl. 3 redefines one of the functions of the faculty board to exclude references to the RHA and to refer instead more generally to relevant NHS bodies.

    CONGREGATION 14 October

    Promulgation of Statutes

    Statute (4): Redesignation of the Rank Foundation Professorship of Electro-optic Engineering

    Explanatory note

    In 1990 the University accepted an extremely generous grant from the Rank Foundation to provide for the first five years of the tenure of a Professorship of Electro- optic Engineering, during which period the chair would bear the name of the sponsors. Professor G. Parry was appointed as first holder of the chair from 1 October 1993. Professor Parry has resigned with effect from 30 September 1997 on appointment to another post, and the chair has been released for refilling. As the next tenure of the professorship will not be funded by the Rank Foundation, alternative financial arrangements have been approved by Council and the General Board. The following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the statute is approved, accordingly redesignate the chair. The draft decree also provides for a standard nine-member electoral board, rather than the ten-member board set up for the first election.

    (4) WHEREAS it is expedient to rename the Rank Foundation Professorship of Electro-optic Engineering, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

    In Tit. XIV, Sect. II, cl. 1 (Statutes, 1995, p. 106), delete `Rank Foundation Professorship of Electro-optic Engineering' and substitute: `Professorship of Optoelectronic Engineering'.

    Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

    1 In Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 1, SCHEDULE, concerning official members of faculty boards (Statutes, 1995, p. 231), under Physical Sciences, delete `Engineering, Electro-optic, Rank Foundation' and substitute `Engineering, Optoelectronic'.

    2 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. B, SCHEDULE A, concerning professorships (p. 368), delete `Rank Foundation Professor of Electro-optic Engineering' and substitute: `Professor of Optoelectronic Engineering'.

    3 Ibid., Sect. III, concerning particular professorships (p. 403), delete § 68 and substitute:

    `§ 68. Professor of Optoelectronic Engineering

    1. The Professor of Optoelectronic Engineering shall lecture and give instruction in Optoelectronic Engineering.

    2. The professor shall be elected by an electoral board consisting of:

    (1) the Vice-Chancellor, or, if the head of the college specified in (2) of this clause is Vice- Chancellor, a person appointed by Council;

    (2) the head of the college to which the professorship shall be for the time being allocated by Council under any decree in that behalf, or, if the head is unable or unwilling to act, a person appointed by the governing body of the college;

    (3) a person appointed by the governing body of the college specified in (2) of this clause;

    (4) a person appointed by Council;

    (5), (6) two persons appointed by the General Board;

    (7)–(9) three persons appointed by the Board of the Faculty of Physical Sciences.

    3. The professor shall be subject to the General Provisions of the decree concerning the duties of professors and to those Particular Provisions of the same decree which are applicable to this chair.'

OXFORD TRANSPORT STRATEGY: CENTRAL AREA ACCESS AND PARKING PROPOSALS

Public inquiry

The University has received notification from Oxford City Council that the public inquiry into the central area access and parking proposals associated with the Oxford Transport Strategy will commence on Tuesday, 27 January 1998, and will be held in the Town Hall, St Aldate's. The inquiry is expected to last about three weeks. The University and a number of colleges are intending to be represented at the inquiry.

APPOINTMENT OF REGISTRAR

The University invites applications for the post of Registrar to succeed Dr A.J. Dorey, who is to retire in March 1998.

The Registrar is primarily responsible for the management and development of the University's central administrative services and staff (some 190 academic- related staff and 220 clerical and other staff) and for the provision of strategic policy advice to the Vice- Chancellor and to the University's principal executive and policy-making body, Hebdomadal Council. The promotion and management of good communication, both internally between the colleges, faculties, departments, and administrative service, and externally, not least with the funding bodies, will also be a key feature of the role.

Candidates will have exceptional analytical and managerial skills allied to a track record in senior management plus the ability to manage communications across a variety of constituencies. Experience of higher education will be an advantage but, at the least, candidates must demonstrate an understanding of the issues and policies presently affecting the sector.

Individuals interested in discussing, in complete confidence, their own possible candidacy are invited to contact either Louisa Stewart or Dr Gavin Mackenzie at Saxton Bampfylde International PLC on 0171-799 1433 by 10 October.

The University is an equal opportunities employer.

REVIEW OF THE EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES CENTRE

When it set up the ETRC in 1992 the General Board decided that it should be reviewed after several years in operation. Accordingly, a review is to be held in Michaelmas Term 1997.

The General Board has set up a review committee, chaired by Professor Barry Cunliffe, with the following terms of reference: to review the range of services offered by the ETRC, its role with regard to the services offered by other similar units (such as the Department of Medical Illustration) and the resources provided to it; to review management arrangements for the ETRC and the organisational structure into which it fits; to consider the future role of the ETRC in relation to technological support for teaching and other activities; and to make recommendations, bearing in mind, where there are financial implications, the level of resources likely to be available, and possible ways of raising the funds needed to implement them if appropriate.

The review committee would welcome comments on any matter within its remit, if possible by Friday, 24 October. They may be sent to either Professor B.W. Cunliffe, Institute of Archaeology, or the Secretary to the Review Committee, Catherine Godman, at the University Offices.

COMPUTING SERVICES

Network Server Management Service

The Network Server Management Service (NSMS) was established in 1995 to meet a growing demand in departments and colleges for managed client/server networks. The service draws on the expertise that OUCS staff have with PCs, Macintoshes and networks, particularly Novell Netware 3.12 and 4.11 servers. NSMS staff are able to set up, update, and troubleshoot Novell Netware servers, supporting Windows, Windows 95, Windows NT, DOS and Macintosh applications and printing services, on a departmental or college network. The service must be charged for, but the Computing Service's experience and familiarity with the University network environment means that the charges are much less than typical alternatives. The NSMS staff work closely with existing IT staff within the department or college, and, by taking on responsibility for the server, free them to deal with other pressing issues such as training and database development.

User Accounts and Filestore

Anyone, whether fellow, staff or student, may be given an account on the server (subject to constraints decided on by the institution owning the server). An account provides each individual with controlled access to software held on the server and secure storage for files which are backed up nightly, and archived once a month. Subject to the agreement of the institution, account names are normally chosen automatically to be the same as those already allocated to the institution's users by OUCS.

Each user may customise his/her Windows desktop, and add his or her own programs as well (subject to approval). The use of individual accounts means PCs may be shared between different users. One of the main benefits of using individual accounts is that problems are normally isolated to one user's account and do not prevent others from using the computer. If a user corrupts his or her Windows settings, he or she can simply choose to reset them to an original configuration from the server, allowing work to continue.


Print Services

Print charges can be recorded automatically for each user, dispensing with the need for awkward print-card systems. Once a term, print charges can be added to the battels, and limits can be placed on any, or all, accounts if required, to prevent users from accumulating excessively large charges.


Technical Support

Support is available by telephone or e-mail, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m., from a team of specialists in Novell Netware servers (except for Bank Holidays and the Christmas holiday period). Problems can be expected to be resolved rapidly, and help is available to identify whether they are hardware-, system software-, or Windows-related. Basic guidelines on how to configure PCs and Macintoshes are provided, and configurations for more complex systems can be established.


Data Backup

A daily overnight incremental backup to the Hierarchical File Server is a standard part of the service, along with a monthly archive, providing a high degree of data security.


Data Recovery Service

In the event that a server stops operating, an NSMS technician will respond to a report within four working hours. If the problem is not hardware-related, resolution of the fault will start immediately, and, if necessary, the server will be restored using the latest techniques and equipment. If the fault is caused by a hardware failure, the NSMS will co-ordinate with the University Maintenance Engineer to begin restoring the server the moment the hardware fault is repaired. In the unlikely event that a hardware fault is not repaired immediately, NSMS will endeavour to find a temporary replacement until the original system is fully operational. In the coming months, NSMS is also planning to provide servers for real-time backups of Security and User information to decrease recovery time even more.


Security

The Novell Netware network operating system is renowned for its high level of in-built security. Access to files and services on the server is restricted by username, but it can also be restricted according to machine. Access to staff files, for example, can be restricted to members of staff using staff computers; the same members of staff would not be able to access the secure files from a computer outside of the staff offices. Access to printing services and applications can be limited in the same manner.

Anti-virus software is installed and used regularly to minimise the risks of computer virus infections on workstations which use the servers managed by NSMS.

Licence management software is normally installed so that the number of application licences can be kept to a minimum whilst assurances can be given to auditors that licence numbers are not being exceeded.


System Integrity and Updates

All system software is kept in line with Novell's latest releases and NSMS staff are informed of new updates by regular reports from Novell's UK Technical Support Centre. Anti-virus programs and software that are free within the University, such as Netscape and Simeon e-mail, are updated regularly. Other applications requiring licences, such as Microsoft Office, are updated at the request of the department or college.
