I-3. Authority to Execute Title VI Assurance of Compliance Certifications
Until recently, the authority to execute the Title VI Assurance of Compliance Certificates was limited to Chancellors by President Hitch's delegation of May 27, 1968. That delegation forbade the further redelegation of the authority.
On August 5, 1976 Assistant President Everett issued a memo addressed to Campus Coordination and Review Contacts wherein she concluded that the current delegation to Chancellors authorizing the execution of grants and contracts "including the signing of related documents as necessary" rendered obsolete the previous restriction in the May 27, 1968 delegation. A copy of her memo is attached.

CAMPUS COORDINATION & REVIEW CONTACTS:
The May 27, 1968 delegation of authority to Chancellors, Vice Presidents, and Dean of University Extension to execute assurances of compliance under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has been effectively superseded by the following delegations:
To Chancellors; To Solicit, Accept, or Execute Certain Extramural Grants and Contracts; April 22, 1974.
To Vice President-Business and Finance; Contract and Grant Administration; August 7, 1975.
To Vice President-Agricultural Sciences; Contract and Grant Administration; August 7, 1975.
Each of these delegations authorizes the execution of grants and contracts, "including the signing of related documents as necessary". The separate authority to execute assurances of compliance is therefore no longer necessary, and the May 27, 1968 delegation should be considered obsolete.
