    CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    In Hilary Term 1995, Council set up a Working Party to consider the issue of conflict of interest, with a view to formulating notes of guidance for University employees. The prevailing climate (as evidenced by the activities of bodies such as the Nolan Committee) was one of general concern about possible conflict between public duty and private interests, and certain funding bodies were increasingly requiring evidence of a conflict of interest policy statement as a condition of a grant; within the University also there was increasing concern, particularly in connection with the holding of consultancies and company directorships. Council was therefore of the view that a policy statement on conflict of interest would be helpful, to provide members of staff with guidance in this area.

    It was recognised by the Working Party that "conflict of interest" was not easy to define, and that rules designed to deal with it should not infringe proper academic freedom. The Working Party was moreover firmly of the view that the University should recognise that the outside activities of its staff often serve to enhance the University's reputation, and ought positively to be encouraged; however, there might be occasions where an employee's external interests were in conflict with the best interests of the University.

    Council on consideration of the report agreed that broad principles ought to be established both to provide the University's employees with guidance on how to avoid conflict of interest, and to protect the University and the individuals concerned.

    The policy statement as approved by Council in March 1996 follows; further copies are available on request from the Research and Commercial Services Office. Key points are:

    — Academic staff will be asked annually to state whether they are currently involved in any outside activities which might have the potential to lead to conflict of interest.

    (The mechanism for this is still under consideration; further information will be circulated in due course.)

    — When making an application for permission to hold another appointment (under Ch. VII, Sect. I § 5. A, cll. 10 and 11–Statutes, 1995, p.359), staff will be required to make a statement that to the best of their knowledge, the holding of such an appointment would not lead to a conflict of interest. The standard application form has been modified to include this statement.

    — Employees wishing to act in the capacity of Principal Investigator on a research project will be required, in each case, to make a declaration to the effect that they believe that receipt of a research grant or contract will not lead to a conflict of interest.

    Council has recognised that it is important for employees to be able to seek advice as to whether outside activities might have the potential for conflict of interest. With this in mind, a Standing Committee on Conflict of Interest has been established which will monitor the implementation of the new policy and provide employees with further guidance. Any enquiries on this issue should, in the first instance, be addressed to the Director of the Research and Commercial Services Office.

    CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    Policy statement by the Hebdomadal Council

    1 The University considers that the participation of its employees in external appointments which utilise their academic skills in interactions with government, commerce, industry, and other external bodies is not only in the public interest but also benefits the University and the individuals concerned. The University therefore welcomes such interactions where they do not interfere with the obligations of employees to the University. It is however conscious that here, as in other areas of public life, such arrangements may lead to a conflict of interest.

    As a means of protecting its own and its employees' interests, the University has given consideration to the various ethical, legal, and financial conflicts with which academics might be faced in consequence of their participation in external appointments. As a result, it has devised a set of principles which, it is hoped, will provide constructive guidance for those pursuing consultancies or other entrepreneurial activities to ensure that such activities complement, rather than conflict with, their full-time employment at the University.

    In formulating these guidelines on conflict of interest, the University has been conscious that the issues involved are so variable and complex that the creation and enforcement of comprehensive and detailed rules would not be possible. It is also aware that the successful operation of such principles relies substantially on the traditionally high standards of personal integrity of university employees. The University has therefore endeavoured to avoid setting rules and regulations which censor and curtail the activities of its employees and instead has sought to maintain the freedoms to pursue outside appointments currently enjoyed by its employees. It seeks to provide a set of principles based on trust and confidence between employer and employee which are aimed at protecting the individuals and the institution from the adverse consequences which sometimes accompany outside activities.

    2 The University is concerned that employees might unknowingly place themselves in situations where conflicts exist; for example, some of the following situations are possible areas for concern with regard to conflict of interest (while not intended to constitute an exhaustive definition):

    (a) arrangements by which employees devote significant time to, or receive financial benefits from, outside activities directly or indirectly related to their university responsibilities. Such activities include those which call on general professional expertise and know-how, as well as those requiring more specific skills or knowledge;

    (b) payments made or received which are contingent upon the outcome of research;

    (c) financial interests in any external organisation with the potential to benefit from the activities of the University;

    (d) close personal ties to those with the potential to benefit financially from the activities of the individual or the University.

    It is important to stress that there are many other examples and this does not constitute an exhaustive list.

    It should also be recognised that senior members of the University have a responsibility to ensure that their external interests should not be allowed to prejudice their dealings with more junior members of staff. Examples of situations in which such conflicts might arise might include the following:

    (a) cases in which students or research assistants are undertaking work on projects sponsored by companies in which the Principal Investigator has some financial or other involvement;

    (b) cases in which students or research assistants are undertaking work on a project in relation to which the Principal Investigator will receive payments (whether in cash or in kind) made or contingent upon the outcome of the research.

    Although situations involving financial gain present the most obvious example of conflicts, there are also issues involving the traditional open dissemination of academic research and issues of education and the exercise of academic freedom, particularly in regard to research findings and intellectual property rights. The phrase `conflict of interest' is used in its wider context in this document.

    3 The key means of avoiding conflicts of interest is a sensitivity to the possibility of conflicts, followed by the early disclosure and registration of any outside interests. In the majority of cases near, or potential, conflicts will involve academic members of staff, for whom certain of the following procedures relating to declaration of outside interests exist:

    (a) in so far as possible, contracts of employment should contain references relevant aspects to the University's policy on conflicts of interest;

    (b) employees will be asked annually whether they are currently involved in any outside activities which might have the potential to lead to conflicts of interest, with respect either to research obligations or to teaching responsibilities. The purpose of this question is not to elicit a formal disclosure of outside interests, but to highlight the necessity for staff to follow the University's guidelines in respect of avoiding conflicts;

    (c) a declaration will be sought on the Outside Grant (OG) form in connection with any externally funded research project to the effect that the Principal Investigator does not believe that receipt of the grant will lead to a conflict of interest;

    (d) in addition to the above, applications for permission to undertake outside activities (under Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. A, cll. 10 and 11—Statutes, 1995, p. 359) will require a statement from individuals to the effect that, to the best of their knowledge, the University's granting of such permission would not lead to a conflict of interest.

    4 The University appreciates that, in many cases, employees will be uncertain as to whether outside activities might have potential for conflict. In such cases, formal or informal advice may be sought from the Conflict of Interest Committee. In addition to providing employees with guidance, the committee has the authority to make further enquiries in regard to outside activities and, if necessary, to withhold permission to pursue an outside activity, or to approve the arrangements on such terms as the committee thinks appropriate, although it is expected that the instances which will require the committee to seek to exercise these powers will be extremely uncommon. Enquiries should be directed in the first instance to the Director of the Research Services Office.

    5 There are certain individuals on whom, by virtue of their substantial budgetary responsibility and/or executive authority, additional responsibilities with respect to conflicts of interest will fall. Such individuals include:

    (a) heads of department;

    (b) certain senior administrative staff, including departmental administrators and senior officers in the University's central administration;

    (c) chairmen of bodies which govern the University's affairs;

    (d) directors of wholly owned subsidiary companies of the University.

    Holders of such academic and other posts are required to make personal declaration on an annual basis to the Conflict of Interest Committee about any potential conflict of interest they may have within their area of responsibility.
