  1. UC DA 2220, dated June 16, 2009 [superseded by UC DA 2596 (Appointment of and Execution of Agreements for Executive Architects, Executive Landscape Architects, and Executive and Consulting Engineers), to Chancellors, et al., dated 4/19/2016];
  2. University of California Facilities Manual, Volume 3.
Supersedes: UCLA DA 800.32 (Appointment of Design Professionals) to Associate Vice Chancellor Hendrickson, 06/13/2007.

Effective as of the date above, I hereby delegate to you, in your area of responsibility, the authority to appoint executive architects, executive landscape architects, and executive and consulting engineers (design professionals) for projects with approved budgets, with total individual project cost not exceeding $60,000,000. Following approval at the appropriate level, you are further authorized to execute necessary agreements regardless of project cost.

This authority shall be exercised in accordance with the requirements of Reference (b), above, and is applicable to all projects with approved budgets on property owned by The Regents or on property which will be owned by The Regents upon completion of the project. Total individual project cost shall be defined as all costs of the project including administrative, design, construction, interest accrued during construction, and equipment costs.

All agreements must be approved as to legal form by the General Counsel prior to execution unless the agreement is in a form previously approved by that office and is issued without revision.

This delegation is being reissued due to the supersession of the parent UC delegation of authority. The substantive change to the delegation being superseded is the total project cost authority has increased to $60 million from $5 million. This authority may not be further redelegated.
