RE: Delegation of Authority - Expenditure or Commitment of Funds Against Approved Research, Training, or Development Contract or Grant

The authority to permit expenditures against approved research, training, or development contract or grant was delegated to Chancellors by Presidential Delegation of Authority DA 0666, April 14, 1980, as amended August 26, 1980. I am delegating that authority to the Vice Chancellor-Research, Assistant Vice Chancellor-Research, Director-Sponsored Projects, Assistant Director-Contracts, and Assistant Director-Grants and Cooperative Agreements, when a fully executed contract is in hand or a written notice of grant award has been received or, in the absence of such documentation, when:

  1. The contract or grant is within the solicitation authority delegated in IDA 374, April 6, 2005 [superseded by IDA446, February 5, 2008; superseded by IDA537, May 4, 2012], a firm commitment exists to reimburse the University for the amount of its own funds advanced, and
  2. There is an essential need to advance or commit funds (which normally means to pay salaries or meet other expenses of a continuing project.)

This authority may not be redelegated further and supersedes Chancellor Wilkening's July 21, 1995 delegation of authority on the same subject (IDA119).
