Changes in Regulations

Council has made the following changes in regulations, to come into effect on 24 October.

Committee to Review the Salaries of Senior University Officers

In Council Regulations 15 of 2002 (made by Council on 26 June 2002, amended 11 July 2002, 25 July 2002, and 31 October 2002; Gazette, Vol. 132, pp. 1402, 1461, 1545; Vol. 133, p. 352), delete regulations 3.67, 3.68, 3.69, and 3.70 and substitute:

`3.67. The Committee to Review the Salaries of Senior University Officers shall consist of:

(1) the High Steward who shall chair the committee

(2) the Chair of the Audit Committee

(3) the Senior Proctor

(4), (5) two external members of Council, appointed by Council

(6) the head of another University or equivalent institution of higher education appointed by Council

(7), (8) two other persons appointed by Council on the occasion of each review, at least one of whom should be appointed from among the members of Council and neither of whom should be either a functional Pro-Vice-Chancellor or a Head of Division.

3.68. Appointed members of the committee shall cease to serve if they cease to hold the office by virtue of which they were eligible for appointment to the committee, and no person in categories (4), (5), or (6) shall serve on the committee for more than six years in total.

3.69. (1) The committee shall in the calendar year 2004 and every two years thereafter review, and then make recommendations to Council on, the salaries to be paid to the Vice-Chancellor, the Registrar, and such other senior officers of the University as Council may from time to time determine.

(2) The committee shall also carry out such reviews at any other time if requested by Council to do so.

3.70. In carrying out such reviews the committee shall consider whether there have been any significant changes in the duties of, or any significant developments associated with, the offices concerned since the salaries of the holders of the offices were last determined; and solicit the views of the office holders concerned and, where appropriate, of the officers to whom they are responsible. Office holders shall be given explanation of the decisions taken if they request it.

[This change revises the procedure for reviewing the salaries of senior University officers to make it more representative of Council while ensuring that no member of the committee has a vested interest in its recommendations; increases the frequency of review from every two to every three years; and brings the committee's procedures in line with those of other University bodies concerned with salary review.]
