Table Last Revised: 1/13/2016 MC

On July 20, 2015, Interim President Dr. Daniel J. Bernardo signed an Instrument of Ratification and Acceptance of Delegations of Authority.  This instrument accepts, affirms and ratifies all current, valid delegations made by President Elson S. Floyd.

The specific scope of delegated authority to sign contracts differs for each individual (i.e. amount, type of contract, etc.); therefore it is necessary to view each letter to determine the scope of contract authority.  Below is a current list of Delegated Contractual Authority.
