SUBJECT:

Public Works Contract – Delegation of Authority
Program — Executive Order No. 1057

The attached Executive Order Number 1057 replaces Executive Order Number 793 by raising the threshold for General Counsel endorsement on public works contracts (except public works related service agreements) to an amount determined pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 10108. Presently, that amount is $600,000. This executive order provides for campus approval and execution of public works contracts up to that amount. Despite the elimination of General Counsel endorsement, it is important that the campus satisfies itself in consultation with General Counsel that its minor capital outlay contract documents satisfy legal requirements.

In accordance with policy of the California State University, the campus president has the responsibility for implementing executive orders where applicable and for maintain¬ing the campus repository and index for all executive orders.

If you have questions regarding this executive order, please call Elvyra F. San Juan, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Capital Planning, Design and Construction at (562) 951-4090.
