Regulations and Change in Regulations

Council has made the following regulations and change in regulations, to come into effect on 23 May.

(1) Regulations

(a) Endowment grants from the College Contributions Fund

The following amounts shall be paid in 2003 to the college named in each case under the provisions of section 6 of Statute XV (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002, p. 129) as grants for the enlargement of the permanent endowment of those colleges:
£
Green College 28,000
Harris Manchester College 33,000
Lady Margaret Hall 159,500
Linacre College 4,000
Mansfield College 500,000
Pembroke College 500,000
St Edmund Hall 141,000
St Peter's College 1,500,000
——————
2,865,500
===========
[This regulation authorises the endowment grants which Council has decided, on the recommendation of the College Contributions Committee, to make out of the accumulated balance of the College Contributions Fund.]

(b) College Contributions Scheme unit of statutory endowment income

The unit of statutory endowment income for 2002–3 is set at £116,000 under the provisions of regulation 2 of Council Regulations 4 of 2003 (Gazette, p. 1148—see corrigendum above).

[This regulation sets the unit of statutory endowment income for 2002–3 under the College Contributions Scheme at £116,000, which represents a decrease of 5.8 per cent from the unit for 2001–2 (reflecting a similar decrease in the overall statutory endowment income of colleges between 2000–1 and 2001–2).]

(2) Change in Regulations

Audit Committee

In Council Regulations 15 of 2002 (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4634, 16 October 2002, p. 231), delete regulation 3.8 and substitute [Note: new wording is indicated by underlining]:

`3.8. (1) The Audit Committee shall consist of:

(a), (b) two persons appointed by Council who shall not be the holders of teaching or administrative posts in the University, or in any college, society, or Permanent Private Hall, and at least one of whom shall have experience at a senior level in the non-public sector;

(c)–(e) three persons appointed by Council who shall not serve on the Finance Committee or on any committee which in the view of Council has main-line executive authority within the University;

(f) a member of Council appointed by Council who shall not be a member of any other body, or hold any other position, which in the view of Council involves executive authority within the University.

(2) The chairman of the committee shall be appointed by Council from among the members appointed under paragraph (1) (a), (b) above.'

[This change, made on the recommendation of the Audit Committee, adds two members to the existing composition of that committee. One will be an additional external member with experience at a senior level in the non- public sector. (Either of the two external members may now be appointed as chairman of the committee.) The second will be an additional internal member who, unlike the existing internal members, will be a member of Council but may not be a member of any other body or hold any other position which involves executive authority within the University. This complies with the HEFCE Audit Code.]
