Pursuant to The Regents' action of March 1977 which instituted a University Policy on the Procurement of Foreign-Made Equipment, Materials, or Supplies Produced by Forced Labor, Convict, or Indentured Labor, I am issuing Administrative Guidelines to implement this policy, to be effective immediately.
You will note that the Administrative Vice Chancellor for each campus is charged with resolving any protests regarding the imposition of sanctions against any seller or contractor who provides the prohibited goods to the University. The General Counsel shall be consulted concerning disputes which cannot reasonably be settled in a fair and equitable manner through the administrative process described in the Guidelines.
