Policies monitored include staff personnel policies, Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) regulations and policies, the Group Insurance Regulations for the health and welfare benefit plans, and, in coordination with the Retirement Administration Service Center, the University of California Retirement Plan Regulations.
