The executive summaries of these reports have now been posted on the intranet at https://www1.admin.ox.ac.uk/councilsec/assurance/auditandscrutinycommittee/auditrep. The full reports may be consulted by members of Congregation at the University Offices by arrangement with the Senior Assistant Registrar (Assurance), Sally Vine (email: sally.vine@admin.ox.ac.uk, tel: (2)80179).

University Committees: Vacancies for appointment by Council and/or its General Purposes Committee

Council's General Purposes Committee (GPC) invites members of the University (subject to eligibility) to submit expressions of interest in relation to the following vacancies to which it or Council appoints.

Expressions of interest must be received by the Council Secretariat (shirley.mulvihill@admin.ox.ac.uk, tel: (2)80463) by 4pm on 31 March.

Any eligible person who wishes to have his or her name put forward for consideration is encouraged to speak with his or her head of division or head of house, and/or with the relevant committee members or officers to obtain more information about the role, prior to submitting an expression of interest. Expressions received from individuals will be collated by the Council Secretariat with those names received through other routes (such as via heads of division, heads of house or committee officers directly). All names will then be reviewed by the Registrar and Vice-Chancellor prior to being forwarded to GPC and/or Council for consideration as the appointing bodies for these committees.

The purpose of this invitation is to broaden the pool of potential candidates brought to the attention of the appointing body. The names put to the appointing body are only suggestions. It should be noted that the appointing body remains free to take its own decision, irrespective of any names received through this route. In particular, to support the commitments made by the University under its equality scheme, the appointing body will take into consideration the overall balance of membership on the body concerned, with reference to the appropriate representation of ethnicity, disability, age and gender.
