Signature Authority

BRC staff are required to only process those transactions that have been approved by an authorized departmental signer. Subdivision Heads have the authority to commit departmental funds allocated to them through the budget process. If the Subdivision Head would like others to be able to authorize departmental transactions, they must be re-delegate authority in writing.

Complete the UCOP Signature Authority Delegation Form (pdf) to add, update, or delete delegations of authority. Also, please note that current practice is generally to limit authority to a dollar threshold that is appropriate to the employee's position. Also, it is often appropriate to delegate authority at the Subdivision or Department level. In these instances, the SDIV or DEPT code should be indicated rather than a listing of accounts.

Questions should be addressed to the BRC Compliance, Accounting, Audit and Compliance team.
