Adding or Changing a Delegation

If you have questions about what a particular delegation means or whether or which delegation applies to a particular contract contact the Office of the General Counsel at 612-624-4100.

If you have changes to existing delegations or would like to create a new delegation, send your request to deleg@umn.edu. Your request will be returned if it does not contain all of the following information.
Note: Delegations cannot be made prospectively. Delegations will be entered on or shortly after the effective date.

Requests for NEW delegations must include the following information:

  1. Who is authorizing the request?
  2. Who is delegating the delegation of authority, i.e., the delegator? (include name and internet ID)
  3. Who is receiving the delegation of authority, i.e., the delegatee? (include name and internet ID. Note: For new employees be sure you use the employees final internet id. If the internet id changes, all delegations will have to be reentered.)
  4. What is the Authority Code (example: FN04 Purchases of goods and services up to $49,999)?
  5. For which units does the delegatee have the delegation of authority? The database requires EFS Dept ID numbers.
  6. Are there any limitations on the delegation? For example, "this delegation may be sube-delegated only to xxxxxx (position title, not name of individual)."
  7. What is the effective date of the delegation if it is different from the date of the request?
  8. Are there any delegations that should be removed as a result of this request?
