EU Public Procurement Regulations

2 December 2013

The Council, on the advice of the Finance Committee, has declared that the University continues to remain outside the scope of the EU Public Procurement Regulations as it is less than 50% publicly funded. The calculation is carried out annually to ensure that it remains possible to make the declaration. It is the Council’s intention that the University’s procurement procedures should continue to follow the good practice set out in the regulations and in the University’s Financial Regulations (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 1009; see also

Review of the governance and management arrangements for sport within the University: Committee report and consultation period

2 December 2013

In November 2012, the Council established a committee to review and make recommendations in relation to the governance, management, and funding of sport in the University. Members of the University were invited to submit comments (Reporter, 6302, 2012–13, p. 413). The review committee has received evidence from many parties across the University and presented a consultative report to the Council at its meeting on 25 November 2013 on its findings and recommendations. The report is available online at:

The Council has given preliminary consideration to the report, and agreed to approve it as the basis for consultation in the University. A period of consultation on the recommendations will be held until 3 February 2014, and members of the University are invited to submit their comments to prior to that date. As part of the consultation process, the report will be discussed at the Discussion on 21 January 2014. The review committee will then consider the responses to the report in February. It is anticipated that the Council will publish a Report on the final recommendations in March 2014.
