POLICY NEWS

A New and Improved Delegations of Authority System!

The President's delegation of authority system is critical to the University – it helps ensure that all binding agreements are legally accurate and approved by individuals who hold that authority, and it protects the University from intentional and unintentional misuse of authority.

Next to the larger-than-life upgrade of our key enterprise systems, both the improvement and replacement of the delegations system may seem quite small. It is, however, the culmination of over 2 years of work under the direction of the President's Operational Excellence team, and we would like to give you a brief update on our progress.
