HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL

Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 18
July.

List of the decrees:


Decree (1): Procedures for the
administration of the University's intellectual property policy

Explanatory note

In Michaelmas Term 1996 Council made a decree setting out the
procedures for the implementation of the University's intellectual
property policy. The decree prescribes, inter alia, the
arrangements for the distribution of revenues arising from the
commercialisation of freely exploitable intellectual property
developed by university staff and students. Owing to a
misunderstanding, the
formula shown for the distribution does not adequately reflect the
position agreed by Council in the light of the 1995 review of
technology transfer arrangements. In particular it does not make
clear that a levy, currently set at 30 per cent, is deducted from the
aggregate receipts to the University after professional costs have
been covered, as a contribution towards costs of protection and
exploitation. Although this levy has been in place since the
company's inception, previous tables for royalty distribution have
shown the percentage distribution after the levy has been deducted,
giving an incomplete picture of the true division of revenue.
Council has accordingly made the following decree to rectify this
situation and to set out the correct arrangements for the division of
revenue.

Text of Decree (1)

In Ch. VIII, Sect. xi (Statutes, 1995, p. 522, as
inserted by
Decree (2) of 5 December 1996,
Gazette, p. 432), delete cl. 7 and substitute:

`7 (a) Whenever exploitation is assigned to Isis, any net
revenue received as a result of the commercialisation of any item of
freely exploitable intellectual property after meeting such
professional fees and expenses, and any other costs necessarily
incurred in protecting the intellectual property and negotiating the
arrangements for
exploitation, shall be distributed as follows:

Total net revenue Researcher(s) General Fund Department Isis
up to £43K 63% 7% 0% 30%
Band from £43K
and up to £430K
31.5% 21% 17.5% 30%
Band from £430K
and up to £4.3m
15.75% 28% 26.25% 30%

If the net revenue exceeds £4.3m, the distribution of the excess
shall be subject to negotiation.

(b) In any case in which the commercialisation of a
freely exploitable invention takes place through the
Research and Commercial Services Office, the distribution shall be as
stated above, save that the 30 per cent share normally payable to
Isis shall be passed instead to the General Fund.

(c) (i) In any other cases, such as those involving
exploitation of intellectual property by the Research
and Commercial Services Office through licensing to the company which
has sponsored the generation of the intellectual property under a
university research contract, the distribution shall be as follows:

Total net revenue Researcher(s) General Fund Department
Band up to £30K 90% 10% 0%
Band from £30K
and up to £300K
45% 30% 25%
Band from £300K
and up to £3m
22.5% 40% 37.5%

If the net revenue exceeds £3m, the distribution of the
excess shall be subject to negotiation.

(ii) Notwithstanding (c) (i) above, in the case of
licences (e.g. in respect of software or cell lines) from which
revenues are small (less than £5K per annum) and when
inventors have waived their rights in favour of their
department, royalty receipts shall be allocated entirely to that
department.

(d) The researcher's entitlement shall continue to be
paid to him or her should he or she leave the University; and in the
event of the researcher's death, the entitlement shall continue for
the benefit of his or her estate.'

Decree (2): Fee for the Postgraduate Diploma in Management
Studies

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Resources
Committee, increases the university fee payable in 1997–8 for
the Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies from £250 to
£500, and makes clear that the fee is paid in full in the first
year of the course and that no further fee is payable. Candidates
take the course on a part-time basis over a minimum of two years.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1996, p.
1065, l. 7, after `annual rates' insert `, save in the case of the
Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies where the specified fee
shall be paid in the first year of the course only'.

2 Ibid., l. 21, delete `£250' and substitute
`£500'.

3 This decree shall be effective from 1 October
1997.

3 Board of the Faculty of Medieval and
Modern Languages

The Board of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages has made
the following Regulations, under the
provisions of Title XIV governing the loan of equipment under its
control to members of the University, with immediate effect:

`Regulations

1 Equipment is issued on loan for a stated period,
and must be returned by the specified date.

2 Those to whom equipment is loaned must take due
care not to damage the equipment or occasion its loss.

3 Failure to comply with 1 or 2 above will be
referred to the chairman of the Faculty Board, who may determine that
the individual concerned shall be debarred from receiving further
loans for a specified period. The chairman may further determine that
the matter should be referred to the Proctors, under Title XIII, cl.
2(a).

Rules governing loans of laptop computers

All persons receiving on loan a Modern Languages laptop computer or
any other equipment owned by the faculty board are required to
observe the following terms and conditions:

1 Refer to and abide by the University and OUCS
`Rules for Computer Use'.

2 Do not override or disable the anti-virus
software installed on the machine. [Note: IBM-compatible
users: when starting the machine, please allow it to run through the
virus check, i.e. do not press Esc to override this check. Check all
diskettes with the Sweep A: program from the DOS prompt before use.]

3 Refrain from modifying existing or installing
additional software. [Note: If you wish to use software not
already
installed, please consult the faculty IT staff, via the Faculty
Office.]

4 On return of the equipment, do not leave
personal files on the hard disk. Copy these on to your diskette, then
delete from the hard disk, taking care not to remove the program
files.

5 Report any loss, damage, or hardware or
software problems to the Faculty Office without delay. Technical
problems will be referred to faculty IT staff for investigation. Do
not attempt to effect any repair without consulting them.

6 Equipment issued on loan should not be used by
anyone other than the borrower.

7 Machines are issued on loan for a stated
period, normally a maximum of four weeks, which may be renewable on
request if not required by another user. During the long vacation a
loan may be authorised for up to three months.

8 Please ensure that all accessories provided,
such as carry case, battery charger, mains adaptor, are present on
return of the equipment.

Note: The equipment is insured by the University, but the
high excess payable in case of an individual claim means the cost of
replacement would not be met even if a claim were accepted.'

St Catherine's College


Appointment of Academic Administrator

The post of Academic Administrator exists both to execute and to
co-ordinate academic support arrangements in the college. The
responsibilities of the Administrator will include a wide range of
academic administration related to senior and junior members, the
supervision of staff, and a major role in the undergraduate and
graduate admissions procedures and the induction of new students. The
Academic Administrator will be directly responsible to the
Senior Tutor (a fellow of the college who has responsibility for
academic affairs and who reports on such matters to the college's
governing body) and will also act as secretary to academic
committees.

There are at present two other experienced staff working in the
office: the Admissions and Degree Secretary, who deals with liaison
with schools, supports the undergraduate admissions process, and
co-ordinates arrangements for degee ceremonies; and the Tutorial
Secretary, who is responsible for all tuition support facilities. The
staff assist each other during busy periods. A separate
bursarial staff in the same part of the college deals with financial,
estates, and domestic matters.

Applicants should have proven experience and qualifications in
high-level administrative and secretarial areas, together with office
management, organisational, and
social skills. Applicants should be able to use computers for
databases, spreadsheets, word-processing, and electronic mail. The
office is extremely busy and the successful applicant must be able to
work confidently under pressure. A high degree of personal initiative
and integrity are essential as the Administrator will need to deal
from time to time with confidential and personal matters for both
senior and junior members of the college. The successful applicant
will share the college's primary commitment to the pursuit of
academic and intellectual achievement.

Salary will be on the academic-related scale 2 (B51),
£17,606–£22,785, with eligibility to join USS. Annual
holiday entitlement is twenty-five days, plus non term-time bank
holidays.
Applications, including a full curriculum vitae and the
names of three referees, should be sent to the Senior Tutor, St
Catherine's College, Oxford OX1 3UJ, by the closing date, 14 July.
Interviews are planned for the week beginning 28 July. The college
wishes the successful person to be in post by 29 September at the
latest.

Further
particulars are available (telephone: Oxford (2)71701).
St Catherine's College exists to promote excellence in education and
research, and is an equal opportunities
employer.

St Hilda's College


Appointment of Junior Dean

reside in college, free of charge, and will also receive free meals
at high table and an honorarium of £1,000 per annum. Applicants

advanced study or research.

Since St Hilda's has many students from overseas, applicants who are
sympathetic to the needs of these students will be particularly
welcome.

Further particulars may be obtained from the College Officers'
secretary, St Hilda's College, Oxford OX4 1DY (telephone: Oxford
(2)76815), to whom four copies of applications, including a full
curriculum vitae, should be sent by 11 July. Two

direct by the same date. If the applicant is a registered graduate
student, one of the referees must be the applicant's university
supervisor. Interviews will be held
