Sept. 20, 2013: New west entry gate goes into service Sept. 25
From Cliff Contreras, director, Transportation and Parking Services

Dear Campus Community,

Effective Wednesday, Sept. 25, the new West Gate Information Kiosk will open for operation and will be staffed Monday-Friday, 7a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of university holidays. The current gate on Hutchison Drive near the Silo will be removed, resulting in an expansion of the protected core of campus for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Motorists may drive up to the new West Gate Information Kiosk and ask the attendant for core access (via a 30-minute loading permit), if they do not already have a center core permit-gate access card. Vehicle access will be provided only for conducting university business, such as short term (up to 30 minutes) for loading-unloading purposes. 

Access will not be provided for general or convenient parking, dropping by the Silo for lunch, or as a shortcut across campus, so please plan accordingly.

Outside of regular operating hours, the gate arm will remain closed and access will be restricted to those with active gate cards, gate codes or tokens. 

Parking in the core campus is restricted, and most spaces will be marked for specific vehicles and-or limited to one hour. It will also be necessary to have a core campus permit displayed when accessing the core area, which will now include lots 42, 43 and 43B. People who currently park in these lots will need to locate alternative parking areas outside of the center core, such as lots 40 or 41, or the West Entry Parking Structure.

Departments requiring frequent access to the core campus outside of regular operating hours may contact Michelle McArdle, TAPS operations manager, mamcardle@ucdavis.edu, to provide written justification and request for access. Any associated costs and parking options will be provided upon review of the request. 

People with severe disabilities that impede their ability to walk-travel from Lot 41 to their destination are advised to contact Campus Recreation, (530) 752-1730, for information regarding the Mobility Assistance Shuttle, a service provided to disabled staff, faculty and students. For additional options, contact Disability Management Services, (530) 752-6008.

Sept. 16, 2013: New UC policy on reporting suspected child abuse
From Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter

Dear Colleagues,

As the beginning of the new academic year approaches, I write to make you aware of an important new University of California policy that requires a broader group of UC employees to report suspected child abuse and neglect. This policy is based on the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act, which became effective earlier this year. Under the new law, all coaches and all university employees who have regular contact with individuals under the age of 18 as part of their job duties are considered "mandated reporters." Many university employees were considered mandated reporters under the former law. This includes employees who work in health care and law enforcement positions. If you were a mandated reporter under the prior law, you are still considered a mandated reporter. Additionally, California law has long required all of us, regardless of our university affiliation, to notify law enforcement if we observe the murder or rape of, or the performance of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14.

Mandated reporters are legally obligated to report suspected child abuse to law enforcement immediately and, under the new UC policy, they are also required to report suspected child abuse to the university's whistleblower hot line: (800) 403-4744 or online. More information about the new law and policy is available here.

If you believe you may be a mandated reporter and you have not signed a mandated reporter acknowledgement form, please contact your supervisor about this as soon as possible. If you have questions about the new policy, you may contact Wendi Delmendo, chief compliance officer, (530) 752-9466 or wjdelmendo@ucdavis.edu, or Steve Green, manager of Employee and Labor Relations, (530) 754-8935 or elrmanager@ucdavis.edu.

It is critical that we take all necessary steps to protect minors who visit our campus and participate in our programs. Even if you are not considered a mandated reporter under the law, I ask that you report suspected child abuse to law enforcement and that you notify your supervisor or the university hot line when you observe suspected child abuse on university property or in connection with university programs.

Thank you,

Ralph Hexter

Aug. 7, 2013: Update on search for new dean of CA&ES
From the recruitment advisory committee chairs

As mentioned previously, a decision was made to delay the formal campus visits until the end of September/early October to ensure broad participation of our students, faculty, staff and our key stakeholders. The recruitment advisory committee has met a few times to screen both formal applicants and nominated candidates, and is now in the process of gathering additional materials and reaching out to more potential candidates to encourage them to apply. At the next meeting, the intent is to narrow the pool to 10 to 12 individuals to invite for first-round interviews. The committee intends to hold tight to the goal of holding on-campus visits at the end of September/early October.


The on-campus interviews will include public forums, and attendance is strongly encouraged. The dates for the public forums will be advertised on the recruitment website as soon as they are finalized. Please encourage your colleagues and key stakeholders to attend these public forums and to provide feedback regarding each candidate with 48 hours of the public forum to the dedicated email address for this search: caesdeansearch@ucdavis.edu.

Aug. 6, 2013: Call for nominations for Business Officer Institute
From Staff Development and Professional Services

The next session of the UC Business Officer Institute, sponsored by the UC Office of the President, is scheduled from Monday through Thursday, Oct. 21-24, in Irvine. We seek your assistance in identifying and nominating individuals for participation.

The Business Officer Institute was established in recognition of the critical role that business officers play in a rapidly changing business environment characterized by localized decision-making authority, increased regulatory interest and oversight, emphasis on risk-taking and innovation, and increased complexity.

Candidates are those who have broad decision-making and/or supervisory responsibilities for the control environment, financial management, budget, risk management, imformation technology, sponsored projects or human resources, in academic or administrative departments.

Candidates must be classified at the Professional and Support Staff (PSS) level or the Managers and Senior Professionals (MSP) level to be eligible. People who have attended before, in either Northern or Southern California, are not eligible to attend again.

UCOP covers all program and group meal costs (breakfasts, lunches and breaks), as well as the opening reception dinner on Oct. 21. UCOP will not cover the cost of travel, parking, hotel expenses of $149 per night, or independent dinners on Oct. 22 and 23.

Nominations are due by Wednesday, Aug. 21, on this form, to be delivered to the Davis campus coordinator for the Business Officer Institute, Marla Dolcini, of Staff Development and Professional Services, by email, mtdolcini@ucdavis.edu, or fax, (530) 752-4744. SDPS is in the Heitman Staff Learning Center.

July 31, 2013: Annual systemwide payroll disclosure
From the Office of Public Records, UC Office of the President


Dear colleague:
 
As part of the university’s obligation to be transparent and publicly accountable for its conduct, including the way it compensates its faculty and staff, UC is conducting its annual disclosure of systemwide employee compensation for calendar year 2012. This disclosure parallels last year’s payroll disclosure and is consistent with similar practices at many other public institutions.
 
The 2012 payroll data, along with a summary analysis, is available online and will be available to news media upon request.
 
Because UC is a public institution, employee compensation is considered a public record under the California Public Records Act and is reflected in Personnel Policies for Staff Members, PPSM 80(C), which reads, in part:

“Information which is public information and which should be released upon request includes name, date of hire, current position title, current salary, organizational unit assignment, date of separation, office address and office telephone number, current job description, full-time or part-time, and appointment type.”
 
The Academic Personnel Manual, APM 160-20(b)(4), states that any “nonpersonal” information “is public information and is available upon request to any person or entity without limitation.” It defines “nonpersonal” academic personnel information as including name, date of hire or separation, current position title and current rate of pay.
 
Questions about access to the payroll data may be directed to local Information Practices/Public Records offices. The primary contact at UC Davis is Lynette Temple, information practices coordinator, Office of Campus Counsel, reachable by telephone (530) 752-3949 or email.
