A direct payment may be made for University obligations for which little or no value can be added by processing the transaction through standard procurement procedures. The preferred method for processing such transactions is the University Procurement Card (P-Card).
Staff, Faculty and Students may be reimbursed for business related expenses. In addition to business travel and hospitality, they can also get reimbursed for business related purchases for their department or project. All reimbursements must be requested using the appropriate form: Travel Expense Claim, Hospitality Expenses Claim or the Business Expense (Non-Travel) Reimbursement Request Form. Employees may be reimbursed for goods up to $1,000 from any single vendor with proper approval from Department Head or authorized designee.

3. Fire safety inspections (Cal-Fire, SFFD)
4. Occupational health & safety inspections (Cal/OSHA)
Inspectors may call ahead to make an appointment, or may show up unannounced.

This is the University Executive Directives website. University Executive Directives (UEDs) are guiding principles that express the institutional culture, goals, and philosophy of the University. UEDs promote consistency and operational efficiency, enhance our mission, and mitigate significant organizational risk. They are approved by the University President, are non-negotiable, and change infrequently.
Below you will find the most recent up to date University Executive Directives.
