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.

Sustainable Practices Policy Revision The systemwide Sustainability Steering Committee (SSC) is the governing body for the Sustainable Practices Policy and reviews the policy annually for required updates and revisions. This year the SSC approved several policy updates to Climate Protection, Zero Waste, UC Health, and Sustainable Food Services sections to update the targets and add additional requirements. In addition, a new General Sustainability Performance Assessment section was added, and minor revisions were made to clarify the intent and improve the readability of other policy sections. 5/30/2020 Leave a comment!
AM-D-371-35 Disbursements-Honorarium Payments Rescission This Accounting Manual went through a technical review and was determined that it is a procedure not policy, thus, it is being proposed for rescission. Only the Campus Payroll/UCPath and Academic Personnel review this chapter. In the review of the proposed procedure, the Policy Owner received comments from Academic Personnel and the Davis and Merced campuses. The applicable recommendations received will be included in the final version of the document. This updated procedure will be posted into the SharePoint site after the policy is rescinded. This site is accessible to anyone with a UC email address. 6/22/2020 Leave a comment!
