Discussion of a topic of concern to the University on 10 July 2001: Notice

23 July 2001

The Council have received the remarks made at the Discussion on 10 July 2001 on the issuing by the Personnel Division of Guidelines on the acceptable use of computer facilities, e-mail, and the internet (p. 971). They have agreed to refer these remarks to the Personnel Committee and the Information Technology Syndicate.

The Chairman of the Personnel Committee, in the remarks read out on his behalf at the Discussion, stated that the Personnel Committee proposed that the Guidelines be revised to make it clear that there was no intention to routinely monitor e-mail and internet traffic, and to set out in detail the procedure by which files and mailboxes would be accessed on the rare occasions when this was necessary. He further stated that the revision would take into account the points raised at the Discussion.
