Issues Under Review

UC Seismic Safety Presidential Policy


April 24, 2020

Associate Vice President & Systemwide Controller Peggy Arrivas has submitted proposed revisions to the UC Seismic Safety Presidential Policy (UC-CR-17-0324) for review.

The revisions have been summarized as follows.

  • Policy implementation procedures are moved from the Policy and published to the UCOP website within the UC Facilities Manual. The UC Facilities Manual is a repository for information and procedures related to UC Capital Programs practices.
  • Technical seismic engineering standards are updated to reflect current California Building Code and industry standards, and where applicable, specification of technical seismic engineering standards are moved from the Policy to the UC Facilities Manual.
  • Policy requirements are clarified, and sections of the Policy Text are re-organized into a more logical sequence for clarity.

A link to the review materials is provided in the resources box.

Faculty who wish to comment are welcome to do so. All comments received by May 22, 2020 will be included in the review materials for Senate Council consideration.
