Delegation of Authority--Approval of Waiver of Subrogation Rights, National Aeronautic and Space Administration
At the meeting on July 17, 1998, The Regents granted the President blanket authority to execute a National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) clause which requires assumption by the University of third-party liability, action which is restricted to The Regents under Standing Order 100.4(dd)(9).
Effective immediately, you are authorized to solicit and accept or execute any grants or contracts containing the NASA Waiver of Subrogation Rights (Clause Number 1852.228-75(d)), subject to the terms of the July 17, 1998 Regental authorization, a copy of which is attached.
Campuses must attempt to reduce the University's potential risk for subcontractors' liability by negotiating appropriate contractual relationships and asking the subcontractors to (1) indemnify The Regents and the United States government against such liability, and (2) name The Regents and the United States government as additional insureds on their insurance policies.
Any redelegation of this authority shall be in writing, with copies to the Senior Vice President--Business and Finance, the Special Assistant--Coordination & Review, the General Counsel and Vice President for Legal Affairs, and the Secretary of The Regents.
Richard C. Atkinson
