RE: Redelegation of Authority to Solicit and Accept Gifts

In his Delegation of Authority dated March 23, 1994 (enclosed). President Peltason delegated to Chancellors the authority to solicit and accept gifts that do not specifically require the approval of The Regents or the Vice President-University and External Relations, up to and including a value of $5 million. University and External Relations Vice Presidential authority is required:

  1. to approve solicitation or acceptance of any gift over $5 million, an authority which shall not be redelegated: and

  2. to accept gifts to the University which have not been designated for a specific campus or which have been designated for use by more than one campus or on a University-wide basis.

Regental authorization is required for solicitation or acceptance of any gift that involves:

  1. exceptions to approved University programs or policies [Standing Order 100.4(dd)(l)];

  2. obligations on the part of the University to expenditures or costs for which there is no established fund source [Standing Order 100.4(dd)(l)];

  3. construction of facilities not previously approved [Standing Order 100.4(dd)( I )];

Regental or Presidential authorization, as appropriate, is required for solicitation or acceptance of any gift that involves an interest in real property [Bylaw 21.3 (f)(2)(aa)].

I hereby redelegate to each of you, in your respective areas of responsibility, the authority specified in President Peltason's Delegation of March 23, 1994, up to and including the maximum amounts noted below.

A copy of the proposal and the General Counsel's opinion shall be provided to the Vice President-University and External Relations. If there is any doubt whether gift terms comply with the policies of the University, including those set forth in the Development Policy Manual, the questions shall be referred to the Vice President—University and External Relations for interpretation and advice prior to acceptance.

  2. Gifts to The Regents shall be accepted, administered, documented, and reported in accordance with established University policies, guidelines, and procedures.

  3. Gifts to Campus Foundations shall be accepted, administered, documented, and reported in accordance with the September 15, 1995 Policy on Support Groups, Campus Foundations, and Alumni Associations and the October 13, 1989 Administrative Guidelines for Campus Foundations.

  6. Gifts of $1 million and more to The Regents, the UCSF Foundation, and University Support Groups shall be reported quarterly to the President by the Chancellor; this responsibility shall not be redelegated.

For purposes of this redelegation, the dollar amount of a gift shall be the amount of cash actually received; or, in the form of a pledge, the full amount pledged; or shall be equivalent to the fair market value of securities or personal property.
