Questions or Suggestions
UCLA Delegations of Authority (DA's) Web site contains current campus
delegations, links to related UC DA's where available, and various tables
and screens for searching and locating UCLA DA's. The majority of campus
DAs originate with letters of delegation from the UC Office of
the President to the Chancellor. Where practical, references or links
to UC DAs and other applicable UCLA and UC policies, guidelines,
and reference materials are provided. See also: Related
The online Delegations site is maintained by the Administrative Policies & Compliance Office.
A UCLA delegation of authority (UCLA DA) conveys significant authority and responsibility from one campus official to one or more campus officials. Delegations are made to individuals in the capacity of their current positions. The delegation remains with the position and not the individual when, for example, the individual assumes a new and different position. DA's are intended to provide clear, unambiguous statements of action that may be taken by the delegatee(s) or assign administrative responsibility within specified parameters. Delegations should always state whether or not the subject authority may be further redelegated. They remain in effect until such time as they are Superseded or Retired. The online Delegations Website displays the text of each Active delegation in Web page format as well as in PDF format.
In addition to displaying the text for each active delegation of authority, the online Delegations site contains several tables listing the Active DA's by Subject, by UC DA, and with sortable date, number and delegator fields. You may also search by Delegators/Delegatees and by Keyword or Date Range. The Delegation Table lists all of the campus delegations that are Active, recently Retired or Superseded or Under Review, although only those that are Active have been published. This listing will be updated as DA's are added, superseded, revised, etc. accordingly.
To simplify and rationalize delegation numbering, a new numbering scheme is being introduced. Campus delegations issued prior to 1998 were numbered based on functional areas using four digits beginning with 5, followed by a decimal and another digit (e.g., 5540.1). In many cases, delegations were redelegated one or more times referencing the same number.
issued since 1998 have been numbered according to functional sections
100 through 900 (sections 300 and 400 not in use). Every
new instance of a delegation is issued a new number. The portion of
the number to the left of the decimal indicates the subject matter and
the portion of the number to the right of the decimal indicates the
instance of the delegation issued for the same subject matter.
The delegations published on this site are currently in effect and have been assigned the status of Active. The delegated authority for Active delegations resides with the Current Holder, which may not be the individual to whom the delegation was originally issued. The remaining delegations listed in the Delegations Table are either Under Review, or have been Retired or Superseded. Under Review, Retired, or Superseded DA's are not published on this Website. Recent changes to the status of any delegation will be featured in the What's New section of the site.
