Campus Levels of Delegated Authority

At the August 8, 2007 meeting, the Board of Regents approved significant revisions to Section 9.4, Project Authorization, within the Board of Regents Policy Manual, Section 9, Facilities. These revisions clarify that the University System Chief Facilities Officer’s delegated authority to approve projects under $1 million applies only to projects that conform with the accepted campus master plan. The revisions also allow the University System Chief Facilities Officer to further delegate any or all of his or her project authorization authority to the institution presidents.

The institution is responsible for administering such delegation in accordance with Board of Regents policies, procedures and guidelines:
