Exercise of this authority shall be in accordance with guidelines established by The Regents and the President, as they may be amended from time to time. These shall include, but are not limited to the following reporting and accountability requirements: (a) the Major Capital Projects Implementation Report, reporting adherence to plans and aggregated performance on specific metrics of Regental and Presidential interest; and (b) an audit, monitoring the factual validity of information reported throughout the process, along with Regental and Presidential policy compliance.
