Signature Authority

Delegation of authority is an organizational process in which responsibility for certain functions is passed down through a specific chain of command. Complete the UCOP Financial Unit Delegated Approver Request (Excel) form to add, update, or delete delegations of authority.  There are predetermined approval levels that departments select for their approvers. Standardizing the dollar thresholds for approval purposes greatly improves system efficiency and maintenance. Limit authority to a dollar threshold that is appropriate to the employee's position. Unless specifically indicated, signature authority may not be redelegated. The request form must be approved by an Entity / Financial Unit Head with authority to redelegate. Submit the form through ServiceNow > Request Service > Business Resource Center > Compliance, Accounting, Audit and Policy (CAAP) > Signature Delegation.

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