Contracts and Signature Authority

The University of California (UC) Regents’ Standing Orders authorize the University President to execute on behalf of the University all contracts and other documents necessary in the exercise of the President's duties. The President has delegated authority to execute purchase agreements to Chancellors, who at UCSF have re-delegated such authority to the Chief Procurement Officer, who has re-delegated such authority to individuals within and outside UCSF’s Supply Chain Management (SCM) department.
