Delegation of Authority--Agreements Pertaining to Purchase of Utilities Commodities and Services

At the November 16, 1984 meeting, The Regents approved deletion of Subsection (9) of Standing Order 100.4(dd), which required that utility agreements exceeding $100,000 per year be authorized by The Regents. The effect of that change is to authorize execution of all such utility agreements by the President under Standing Order 100.4 (dd), which provides in part as follows:

100.4 Duties of the President of the University.

* * *

* * *

Effective immediately, the authority granted to the President in Section 100.4 (dd) of the Standing Orders of The Regents to enter into and to execute agreements pertaining to purchase of utilities commodities and services is delegated to you for your area of responsibility. Any redelegation of this authority shall be in writing with copies to the Vice President--Budget and University Relations and the Director--Coordination and Review.

This supersedes Vice President Fretter's letter of January 13, 1981 to Assistant Vice President Baker regarding Utility Agreements.
