Delegations and Limitations of Authority
Volume 1, Chapter 4
This chapter addresses the University of California's system of reserving and delegating authority in the areas of facilities planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance.
4.1 BASIC AUTHORITY
Bylaws and Standing Orders of The Regents of the University of California, Office of the Secretary of The Regents, Oakland, CA, adopted April 18, 1969 (and succeeding amendments).
Bylaws of The Regents: The Regents of the University of California (The Regents) have the basic authority for governing the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the University's facilities. This authority is set forth in the Bylaws of The Regents.
Standing Orders of The Regents: The Standing Orders of The Regents provide the President of the University (and other University officers) with certain responsibilities and authority. Except as otherwise provided in the Bylaws and Standing Orders, the President, as executive head of the University, has full authority and responsibility over all affairs and operations of the University (Standing Order 100.4).
The Regents set policy for the University as a whole; therefore, Regents' policies may also serve to establish or limit an authority.
4.2 DELEGATED AUTHORITY
As permitted by the Standing Orders, the President may delegate authority to staff members. The President and persons who receive such authority from the President act as agents of The Regents. Authority provided to the President by The Regents in the Standing Orders may be limited. Redelegations of authority by the President may contain additional limitations. Facilities-related authorities and their redelegations by the President are listed in in 4.3.
4.3 DELEGATIONS OF AUTHORITY TABLE
Selected facilities-related delegations of authority and their redelegations by the President are listed in Delegation of Authority 2629. The Delegation and Limitations of Authority Table is arranged so that the sequence of authorities follows the typical sequence of events for a project in the Capital Improvement Program.
