Review of Additions/Updates/Revisions to Presidential Policies

This section includes two types of policy actions:  

  1. Presidential Policies that have been updated or revised with minor changes that the Policy Owner has submitted as “technical and non-substantive” and do not, therefore, require the full vetting of the Presidential Policy process.  These are changes that often provide clarification to language based on feedback and questions from the campuses.  
  2. Presidential Policies that the Policy Owner has recommended for rescission, because they are no longer needed or applicable.  

Both of these policy actions will be posted here for 30 days to solicit comments or questions.  

Please identify any issues that may result from these updates to Presidential Policies. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Policy Office.  After the end of the comment period, the policies will be updated as posted, the current policies replaced, and, if necessary, sent to the President for action.

AM-D224-17 Signature Authority Rescission The policy under consideration was issued in 1983, with the most recent update completed in 2009, to provide detailed information on assigning signature authority, documentation of paper or electronic processing, review of signature authority and retention of said documentation.

AM-A557-67 Evaluation of Legally Separated Entities for Financial Reporting Purposes Rescission The policy was based on the accounting principles issued by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) under Statement No. 14, The Financial Reporting Entity, and Statement No. 39, Determining Whether Certain Organizations Are Component Units.  This policy is being rescinded because the content is technical accounting procedures instead of a presidential policy.
