RE: Relegation of Authority - To Execute Purchase Contracts, Subcontracts, and Standard Purchase Orders for Materials, Goods, and Services to be Supplied to the University of California, Irvine

The authority to execute purchase contracts, subcontracts, and standard purchase orders for material, goods and services to be supplied to the University of California, Irvine was delegated to the Chancellor by Presidential Delegation DA 2100, June 11, 1998. I am redelegating that authority to the Vice Chancellor and Associate Vice Chancellor-Administrative and Business Services, the Director, UCI Medical Center, the Deputy Director, Business Affairs, and the Deputy Director, Clinical Affairs.

In addition, the Campus Materiel Manager and the UCI Medical Center Materiel Manager are delegated the authority to execute purchase contracts, subcontracts, and standard purchase orders for materials, goods and services to be supplied to the University in amounts not to exceed five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000). The University Librarian is delegated the authority for the purchase of library collections in all formats in amounts not to exceed $250,000.

The above authority is delegated provided that:

  1. Purchase contracts, subcontracts, or standard purchase orders are in accordance with University policy, with procedures specified in the Business and Finance Bulletin;
  2. Funds are available;
  3. If required, approval of the contracting and granting agency is secured;
  4. Prior approval is obtained from the Treasurer of The Regents for any acquisition or lease/purchase which contemplates or will result in the issuance of Certificates of Participation in order to provide funding for the transaction.

Approval as to form must be obtained from General Counsel for any purchase contract other than those made on the standard purchase order form or for any change in the standard terms and conditions. The Senior Vice President-Business and Finance shall approve any change in the content of the standard purchase order form, purchase requisition, and request for quotation.

The University Librarian and Materiel Managers only may redelegate their authority to individuals under their supervision.

This letter supersedes Chancellor Wilkening's December 12, 1997 delegation of authority (IDA232), on the same subject.

This delegation does not cover University of California Independent Consultant Agreements, and it is in addition to the Delegation of Authority - Execution of Agreements.
