3 MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT SERVICES MANAGEMENT, SUPPORT SERVICES AND FINANCES ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT SERVICES The road map of the support services towards integrated quality requires administrative simplification, transparency and unitormity. Extensive analysis and discussions between the heads of the support services and the departmental budget managers led to the decision to acquire an integrated data processing system for all administrative services (purchasing, accounting, external funding and departmental management) allowing also online information exchange. This search for an optimal software package began in mid with the compilation of detailed terms of reference of all administrative processes. The tender procedure and assignment started end 2004 and should finish by early In the meantime, the project received the nickname IVAN (ITM s Innovative Administrative Network). The operational start is planned for January In the course of 2004, the general Accounts Services processed 7,928 invoices, 1,412 claims and 620 foreign payment requests; the Medical Services Accounts Unit invested in the introduction and optimisation of a new patient administration system; the Purchasing Unit processed 4,650 purchase orders, 1,498 shipments to overseas partners, booked 530 flights and processed the related visa requirements. Personnel Services managed the salary administration for 340 employees and coordinated the recruitment of 45 new staff members. The External Funding Unit finalised a project database containing all the relevant substantive and administrative information. This database can be consulted on the ITM website, with an automatic link to the European research database SHARED ( ACADEMIC SUPPORT SERVICES As in previous years, the Graphics Unit was responsible for the layout of this annual report. They also contributed to the Memory of Congo exhibition in the Royal Museum for Central Africa, covering the cooperation between the ITM and the Congo in the post-colonial period. The electronic slide management system (Cumulus) was further implemented and extended to 13,000 images. The Unit also provided graphical support to the new CD-Rom Lecture notes on Tropical Medicine. Together with the distance learning working group, market research was conducted on single source editing tools for the production of CD-Roms, electronic course material and possible integration into e-learning projects. The equipment was modernised with a high-speed colour photocopier with a faster capacity and two high-tech black and white copiers. The Applied Technology and Production Unit improved its qualitative service to the research departments, the clinical laboratory and a large number of external organisations and NGOs. Within the framework of the quality control system it received accreditation for its culture medium preparations for the mycology laboratory. As well as other diagnostic reagents and test kits, 2.9 million CATT tests were produced for various sleeping sickness control programmes in West and Central Africa. A new test kit was developed for the serodiagnosis of visceral Leishmaniasis (DAT/ VL-FD) and evaluated in Nepal, Sudan and India, in cooperation with the Department of Public Health. Further details about the activities of the Library (chapter Services) and the Student Services (chapter Education) can be found elsewhere in this report.

4 TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES One of the most important achievements of the Technical Services was the construction and equipment of new high security laboratories (Level BL3) for research on HIV and tuberculosis. This project was completed by the end of 2004, as foreseen in the Building Master Plan. Intensive preparations, discussions and coordination with the various users were essential to this success. Other maintenance and upgrading work included: the conversion of classroom O into a laboratory, the installation of a new high-voltage transformer, the replacement of the main water pipes, the expansion of the data network, the installation of multimedia equipment in all classrooms and meeting rooms, various painting tasks, the extension of the electronic security system and the refurbishment of the offices of the Technical, IT and Security Services. After several years of preparation and discussion, the renovation work on the convent in the Sint Rochusstraat finally took off. Hopefully the restoration of the chapel will directly follow so that the entire complex can be ready for use by mid In addition to the achievements mentioned above (IVAN project, project database and multimedia) the IT Unit also supported the further development of the website (Alumni Forum, Telemedicine, new intranet facilities) and the purchase and upgrade of Cumulus (electronic database and processing of imaging material). In addition, all users were moved to Outlook, group training sessions (Outlook, internet web tool and internet for editors) were organised, anti-virus and spyware were upgrade by the installation of an intrusion prevention system, and the server centre was consolidated. The Health and Safety Unit together with the Technical Services worked on the expansion of the electronic entrance and access control system. They contributed to the safety regulations for the L2/L3 laboratory, made an inventory of the biological and chemical agents and secured the waste containers for chemical agents. They also produced a legionella management plan, in cooperation with Hidrocontrol. QUALITY MANAGEMENT In 2001, the ITM embarked on a plan to implement formal quality control systems in all its departments and activities. The target is an institute-wide certification by the end of Halfway this period, we are well on track although the path is demanding and resources are limited. A bottom-up approach, intensely involving all ranks and files, is therefore mandatory but all the more rewarding and sustainable. In 2003, we had achieved formal accreditation from the Belgian regulatory authorities (ISO 17025) of the Medical Laboratory and the AIDS Reference Laboratory, including underlying institutional procedures (see 2003 annual report). In 2004, the accreditation was successfully extended to all other references laboratories and laboratory support services, in the medical services as well as in the research departments (see above). By now, about half of the scientific and technical staff of the ITM is working in laboratories and services accredited according to the same high standard. This implies not just biomedical Standard Operating Procedures, but also tightly regulated administrative procedures and staff competence management. In the mean time, quality management has also been strongly enhanced and formalised in the educational programmes and in the project cycle management. The next phase will include extension to research laboratories, medical services and clinical research, implying also consolidation of general administrative procedures. PERSONNEL On 31 December 2004 the ITM employed 346 people, an equivalent of full-time positions. The following data and graphs are based on this cross-sectional time point. As established in the management agreement with the Flemish Government, the ITM applies the same salary scales, recruitment procedures and working conditions as the Flemish universities. The personnel structure and policy are also very similar to those of the Flemish universities.

5 The personnel categories are: Permanent scientific staff: autonomous academic staff, scientific staff and medical staff. Temporary scientific staff: assistant academic staff, assistant scientific staff and assistant medical staff. Administrative, technical and maintenance staff. In October 2004 the final version of the respective staff regulations for the three staff categories was approved by the Board of Governors. They update the procedures for recruitment, vacancy, job classification, promotion, salary, social and professional career breaks. These regulations are a major element in the development of an integrated quality system and a transparent, fair and efficient personnel management. The increase in staff was mainly financed by external funding (+32 FTE) and the Medical Services (+15 FTE). The institutional staff increased by 25 FTE entirely funded through extra own income. External funding now finances 41% of the total number of personnel, the Medical Services 14% and institutional resources (government subsidies and own income) 45%. This graph does not take into account the 59 PhD students who perform research work at the ITM.

During this period the number of staff increased by 72 full-time equivalents or 30%. After the strong growth of 2003, 2004 was more of a consolidation year, with internal shifts between the different departments and between the three personnel categories. Secondary school or lower 20% Figure 2 shows the educational level of the personnel. 80% of the personnel have higher education diplomas, of which 44% are from universities and 36% from other schools of higher education. Continued education of scientific, technical and support staff is stimulated by internal scientific seminars and external training courses.

The relatively high proportion of the latter (64%) is partly a result of the inclusion of medical services and diagnostic laboratories as well as the in-house maintenance and technical teams. If we exclude these, the ratio becomes 52% sientific and 48% non-scientific staff. When the doctoral students are included, this ratio becomes 60% versus 40%, showing a healthy scientific environment. 136

6 Figure 4 gives the distribution of temporary and permanent contracts. While the majority of personnel have worked for the ITM for a long time, only 52% have permanent contracts. The mandate of the assistant scientific staff is intrinsically temporary. Also most contracts linked to external funding are of limited duration. The employment conditions for staff with temporary contracts have since 1998 been harmonized with those of staff with permanent contracts, however. Senior Scientist Assistant Scientist Admin. & Techn. Figure 4 - Relation Permanent / Temporary contracts Permanent Temporary Figure 5 shows that women now represent 55% of the ITM staff. There is a gender equilibrium within the temporary scientific staff and the technical staff, but a clear under-representation of women in the permanent scientific staff. Hopefully, the ongoing feminization of this category will be strengthened in the following years. As in many other organizations, the ITM has more women than men in administrative and maintenance positions. Figure 6 gives the age structure of the personnel. 29% of total staff are older than 50; and 66% of the permanent scientific staff and 15% of assistant scientific staff belong to this age group. 29% of total staff are in their 40 s and 29% in their 30 s. 12% of ATP are older than 55. Obviously, staff replacement planning will be a major challenge but also an opportunity in the coming decade.

7 MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT SERVICES FINANCES This chapter begins with some general observations and graphs, followed by a detailed financial statement of the annual accounts and the balance sheet including the auditor s report. The graphs below do not take into account the income and expenditure of the sections Trusts and Legacies and Investments. A number of duplicate entries in the results (registration fees, overheads, internal adjustments) have been neutralised. Income In 2004 we recorded 32 million Euro net income, a stagnation in relation to 2003 but nevertheless an increasing trend in the long-term (+ 19% since 2001, + 96% since 1995). In 2002 and 2003 we recorded indeed exceptional income from the AIDS- Impulse programme funded by DGDC (Federal Government Agency for International Co-operation). The proportion of project funding in the total income is 38%. The basic subsidy from the Ministry of Education remains at 28%, registration fees account for 4%, scholarships 3%, the medical service 13%, and own income (overhead, social and fiscal refunds and internal invoices) 14%. Figure 7 gives an overview of ITM s income since The core subsidy from the Flemish government (Ministry of Education) has nominally increased by 19% in the past 9 years. With an average increase in salary costs of 3.5% however, this amounts in fact to a partial reduction of 16%. This core funding nevertheless remains a guarantee for the scientific independence of research, education and service provision, and the international standing of the ITM. Figure 7 - Total income Own income saw a strong increase. It is composed mainly of overhead, internal invoicing, fiscal and social refunds. Since 2002, the production of diagnostic kits was also incorporated in the ITM s core and budget activities. The proportional contribution thus rose to 14%, a six-fold increase since The turnover of the Medical Services is up by 94% since 1995, due to the increase of the number of medical acts, and of the governmental subsidies for reference tasks. Nevertheless, this income remains insufficient to cover the costs of our labour-intensive medical reference tasks. Project funding saw an exceptional peak in 2002 and 2003, due to the AIDS impulse programme from DGDC. The relative fallback in 2004 was therefore to be expected, but with an increase of 137% over the past 9 years, the long-term upward trend continues strongly. Figures 8 and Table 9 give an overview of the evolution of project funding and its sources since The income from secondary Belgian and European research funds fell from 17% in 2002 to 9% in However, this was entirely compensated by an increase in tertiary and quaternary (contract) research funding. The latter funding account for 73% of the total income via projects, 55% of which comes from DGDC. In 2004 income via other international organisations (e.g. IMMPACT, Union against Tuberculosis and Nutrition Tiers Monde) doubled for the implementation of collaborative projects in the South. Their contribution amounts to 15%. The negative amounts in Table 9 are an adjustment of received advances and final accounts of projects against previous years.

9 Expenditure Figure 10 gives the distribution of effective expenditure, which is very similar to last year. The proportion for education and research in 2004 remained 66% of total expenditure, project funding at 41%, the medical services at 13%, management and maintenance at 18%. Table 11 gives the financial details of expenditure under the DGDC programme (see chapter on Development Cooperation). The strong increase in general costs and scientific support since 2003 is due to the new contract format, with a fixed fee for scientific support of 25% (previously spread as working costs over the different projects) and 12% overhead. 63% of the DGDC programme funds are spent in the South and for students from the South. Geographically, 53% is spent in Africa, 11% in Asia and 30% in South Amercia Figure 10-0verview expenditure (x 000 Euro) External Funds MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT SERVICES Table 11 - DGDC Agreement - Expenditure Research & Teaching Support Services Medical Services DGDC-Scholarship Miscellaneous Activities Training in Belgium 371, , ,459 1,013,885 1,310,019 1,022,416 1,145,388 Fellowships 396, , , , , , ,707 Local Courses 86, ,284 82,759 0 Conferences 99,157 59,494 84,284 61,973 36,021 24, ,141 Institutional Cooperation 768, ,769 1,170,057 1,296,483 1,392,670 1,519,080 1,804,767 Operational collaboration 322, , , , , ,569 1,034,021 Policy research 223, , , , , ,846 General costs and scientific support 24,789 96, , , ,679 2,437,022 2,912,610 Total 2,293,015 3,378,789 4,090,243 5,022,323 5,417,018 6,918,948 8,084,480 AIDS Impulse Programme 431,335 3,003,481 1,446,

10 FINANCIAL RESULTS 2004 The following pages give an overview of income, expenditure and results of the ITM over The books are divided into four sections: 1. Institute, 2. Medical services, 3. Project financing and DGDC agreement, 4. Trusts and Legacies. The financial result for the section Institute is positive, and the remaining funds can supplement the 2005 budget. The Medical Services show a negative result which we could cover so far with our own funds. A request to increase in the subsidy for medical reference tasks in particular HIV/AIDS care, has been submitted to the Ministry of Social Affairs. The positive result for the diagnostic production is allocated to the Production Fund, which serves as a buffer against a possible fall in market demand, and supports improvement and innovation of new diagnostic tests. A number of unused funds will be carried forward to The section Project Finance and DGDC Agreement contains duplicate entries with the section Institute, mainly from overhead and registration fees as mentioned above. The balance from this account will be carried forward to next year. The results in the section Trusts and Legacies were allocated to the specific objectives (investments, awards, early retirement premiums, etc.). 49% of total expenditure was spent on personnel costs; for the section Institute this was 76% of expenditure and 70% of income.the global increase in personnel costs was 7% as compared to 2003, partly through additional reserves for early retirement but also for new tasks in projects and in the Medical Services. In 2004, 1,270,771 Euro from the Investment Fund was allocated to the renovation of the convent into a new campus, and the constuction of new high-security laboratories.

13 BALANCE The balance sheet below gives an overview of all assets, provisions, the state of the financial accounts, debits and credits. The reserved funds for investment in the Medical Services and the positive results carried forward add up to an increase of Own Funds with 240,000 Euro compared to The Provisions for risks and costs also rose by 230,000 Euro. These include statutory provision for early retirement and the unused departmental working funds of the courses and the production unit. The Short and long-term debts fell by 1.3 million Euro. On the active side, Fixed Assets rose by 500,000 Euro due to the work in progress and Financial accounts by 2 million Euro. Claims on the other hand fell by 3.5 million euro. The financial indicator for Fixed Assets, which is Own Assets (2.4 million Euro) and long-term External Assets (4.4 million Euro) minus Fixed Assets (6.6 million Euro), gives a net company balance of 0.2 million Euro. The financial indicator for Floating Assets is the ratio between the Floating Assets (20.2 million euro) and Short-term Debts (8.3 million Euro), which is 2.4. There are thus sufficient fund available to cover short-term debts. The accounts and balance were examined and approved by the auditors, as certified in their report on the next page.
