Re: Gifts to an Agency and Reporting Requirements
In May 2008, the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) revised its Gifts to an Agency regulation that provides a test for determining when gifts are considered gifts to an agency and not to a public official, such as a University employee. Under the revised regulation, if a girt to an agency will provide a personal benefit to an employee, such as a gift of travel, the head of the agency, or his or her designee, must select the individual who will use it, report the payment to the FPPC on a California Form 801 (gift to Agency Report) within 30 days, and post a copy of the report on the agency's website.
In his letter dated July 2, 2008, President Yudof delegated to me, as chancellor, authorities and responsibilities to make determinations for purposes of this regulation, including that of designating a local Gift Reporting Filing Officer. Effective immediately, in your role as Senior Vice Chancellor—University Advancement and Planning, I designate you as the UCSF Gift Reporting Filing Officer. Enclosed is a copy of President Yudof's letter, which includes additional background information regarding the Political Reform Act.
