IDA 600

May 16, 2018


RE: Redelegation of Authority - Execution of Service Agreements

The authority to execute service agreements required with outside organizations, agencies, and individuals to implement approved programs and activities, whether the University is the supplier or recipient of the service covered by the agreement, was delegated to Chancellors by Presidential Delegation of Authority DA 1058, December 30, 1991, and redelegated to the Chief Executive Officer–UCI Health System in IDA 594, September 28, 2017.

The Chief Strategy Officer–UCI Health and the Chief Ambulatory Officer–UCI Health, are delegated the authority to negotiate all provider contracts, hospital service agreements, physician service agreements, third-party payer agreements, and similar documents covering both the facility and UC Irvine physicians.

The agreements covered by this authority are limited as specified in IDA 594 and all agreements under this delegation must be executed in accordance with the applicable University and campus policies and procedures governing the particular transaction, including, but not limited to, Business and Finance Bulletins and UCI Administrative Policies and Procedures. All agreements involving insurance and indemnification language must be reviewed for consistency with UC policies and approved by UCI Health System Risk Management prior to execution. All agreements must be approved as to legal form by the either Health Science Counsel or General Counsel prior to execution.

This letter supersedes the December 7, 2015 delegation of authority from Howard Federoff on the same topic (IDA 574).

This authority may not be further redelegated.
