RE: Redelegation of Authority - Execution of Certifications of Application for Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

The authority to execute contracts or grants for the exclusive purpose of signing the Designation of Applicant's Agent Resolution and Certification attached to each application submitted by UC Irvine to the Governor's Office of Emergency Services (OES) for consideration under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), was delegated to the Chancellor by Presidential Delegation DA 2096, dated February 17, 1998. I am redelegating that authority to the Vice Chancellor - Administrative and Business Services.

Under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, uncommitted funds are available to your campuses on a one-time basis from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). These funds are provided on a seventy-five/twenty-five percent cost share basis, with seventy- five percent designated to come from federal funds and twenty-five percent from non-federal funds.

This delegation of authority is limited to the signing and certification of the HMGP applications prepared and submitted by UC Irvine and is intended to facilitate the submission of properly authorized HMGP applications for consideration by OES and FEMA.

Any redelegation of the above authority shall be in writing with copies to me and those listed below.
