    4 Replies to Questions

    J.R. LUCAS, MA, Fellow of Merton College, and PROFESSOR F.G.B.
    MILLAR, MA, D.PHIL., D.LITT., Fellow of Brasenose College, asked the
    Hebdomadal Council the following questions, the following replies to
    which were read by a SENIOR ASSISTANT REGISTRAR on behalf of the
    Hebdomadal Council:

    Question (1)

    How much has the University spent on the Coopers & Lybrand
    report?

    Reply

    The total cost of the Coopers & Lybrand report on the
    University's governance was £94,499.28; this includes
    consultancy fees, VAT, expenses, and the costs of printing and
    distributing the report.

    Return to List of Contents of this section


    Question (2)

    Of this how much was paid to Coopers & Lybrand as a fee?

    Reply

    The fee paid to Coopers & Lybrand was £65,000. The fee
    attracted VAT of £11,375. In addition, the firm's expenses
    totalling £2,987.45 were reimbursed by the University.

    Return to List of Contents of this section


    Question (3)

    How much was spent on distributing copies of the report and the
    précis to members of Congregation and other interested
    parties?

    Reply

    The total costs to the University of printing and distribution were
    £15,136.83.

    These break down as follows. The cost of producing 600 copies of
    the full report was £3,000, which was paid for by the
    University. The cost of the covers of the summary report was shared
    between the University and Coopers &amp; Lybrand, the former
    paying two-thirds of the cost (£1,667), and the latter
    one-third. Taking into account VAT on these two items, the cost to
    the University amounted to £5,483.73. Additional expenses
    involved in printing and distributing the report totalled
    £9,653.10; this figure does not include costs of distribution
    through the University Messenger Service, which were absorbed within
    its general budget.

    The Commission has decided that its final report will include, as did
    the Franks Report, a statement of the full costs of the Commission's
    inquiry.

      UNIVERSITY PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE

      Personal Consultancies

      The University holds a Professional Indemnity Insurance policy which
      indemnifies the University, together with its employees and officers
      whilst acting on behalf of the University, against liability
      for damages (and claimants' costs and expenses) in respect of claims
      arising out of the University's activities as a university
      by reason of (amongst other things):

      (i) any act, neglect, error, or omission, occurring or committed
      in good faith by the University (together with its employees
      and officers whilst acting on behalf of the University);

      (ii) libel and slander committed in good faith by reason
      of words written or spoken by the University (together with its
      employees and officers whilst acting on behalf of the University).

      In the event of liability arising from any dishonest or
      fraudulent
      act or omission, no person committing or
      condoning
      the act or omission is entitled to indemnity.

      The policy does not cover the first £1,000 of any claim for
      damages.

      The policy also provides the same cover for individual members
      of the University's academic, academic-related, and technical staff
      who undertake private work, provided that

      (a) the permission of the University has been obtained,
      and

      (b) fees received for such work are declared to the
      insurer.

      It should be noted, however, that claims in US and Canadian
      courts are excluded.

      This insurance cover is subject to a number of conditions, of
      which the most important are:

      (a) that written notice is given to the
      insurance company as soon as possible after the University
      is aware of circumstances which might reasonably be expected
      to produce a claim against the University (including its employees
      and officers if within the cover)—irrespective of the validity
      of the claim—or as soon as it is informed of such a claim for
      which there may be liability under the insurance cover; and

      (b) that every letter, claim, writ, summons and
      process
      is forwarded to the insurance company immediately on
      receipt
      . No admission, offer, promise, payment, or indemnity is
      to be made or given by or on behalf of the University (including its
      employees and officers if within the cover) without the written
      consent of the company.

      Members of the academic staff undertaking consultancy work with
      the permission of the University (under the rules laid down by the
      General Board), and academic-related and technical staff (who must
      obtain the permission of the head of their department), are strongly
      urged to take advantage of this cover. They may do so by writing, on
      a strictly confidential basis, to Ms J. Clark, Director, Research
      Services Office, Wellington Square, Oxford, stating the name of the
      employer for each consultancy and the fee or the remuneration
      receivable.

      The insurance company will only be notified of the aggregate
      number of consultancies and the aggregate fees on an annual basis
      except in the event of a claim, when details of a particular
      consultancy will be required by the insurer.

      CHAIRMAN OF EXAMINERS

      The Vice-Chancellor desires to call the attention of all
      examiners to the provisions of Ch. VI, Sect. ii.c, § 1,
      clauses 1, 2, and 3 (Examination Decrees, 1995, pp.
      1002–3), which require examiners in all university
      examinations to appoint one of their number to act as Chairman,
      to notify the appointment to the Vice-Chancellor, and to publish
      it in the University Gazette.

      He desires that these appointments shall be notified to the
      Clerk of the Schools who will himself inform the Vice-Chancellor
      and see that notice of them is duly published in the
      University Gazette.

      EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


      Accommodation for Lectures

      Michaelmas Term 1996

      The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
      Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
      at the Schools in Michaelmas Term 1996 could inform the Clerk of
      the Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to
      know whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one
      hundred persons is required; only the three large writing-schools
      will accommodate more than that number.

      Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

      Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection equipment
      and 35-mm projectors are available. When these facilities are
      required the Clerk of the Schools should be notified in advance.
