Delegations of Authority

The UC Davis Delegation of Authority (DA) website contains official information about currently active, superseded, and inactive delegations of authority for the UC Davis campus. The Administrative Policy Unit is the office of record for UC Davis delegations of authority. All currently active delegations and redelegations are available through the Administrative Policy website

When the source of the authority is a Presidential delegation, the local redelegation retains the Presidential delegation number. When the source of the authority is any other Presidential document (e.g., Business and Finance Bulletin, policy, letter), the redelegation is written into local policy or is numbered with the prefix "UCD DA" and a 3-digit number assigned by the Administrative Policy Unit.

Delegations of authority are always delegated to the position, not the individual.
