Effective as of the date above, I hereby delegate to you the authority to execute change orders to a construction contract, design professional or other consultant agreement up to $100,000, within appropriated funds for approved projects within your area of responsibility. Execution of a contract or agreement for a project shall not cause the total cost of the Project (including site clearance, building construction, exterior utilities, site development, A&E fees, campus administration, surveys & tests, special items, construction contingency, and group 2 & 3 equipment) to exceed the approved capital improvement budget.

Any modifications to approved contract or agreement documents not authorized by the UC Facilities Manual require review and approval by the General Counsel and the Office of the President. Detailed requirements are set forth in the UC Facilities Manual.

This delegation is being reissued due to the reissuance of the parent UC DA and there are no substantive changes to the delegation being superseded. This authority may not be further redelegated.
