Section 460 of the ANR Administrative Handbook, “Summons and Court Trials,” has been revised and reissued.
The title has been changed to “Subpoenas” and the text has been rewritten to improve clarity and correct outdated information. As well, the section is now organized after the fashion of a FAQ, which hopefully will be helpful to ANR personnel. These revisions do not change ANR’s existing policy and/or practice. The revised Section is available at Section 460.
Questions regarding Section 460 may be directed to Principal Analyst Claudine Kent of ANR’s Administrative Policies and Business Contracts unit within the Controller's office. Claudine may be reached at(530) 752-7496 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of California's Renewable Resources Extension Act Program is soliciting proposals that would utilize the services and talents of student interns during the summer of 2011. Internships are open to undergraduate or graduate students from any institution of higher education in California, particularly UC and CSU.
Principal investigators will not be granted additional RREA funds to pay for supplemental costs associated with the project. Student interns are expected to work 40 hours/week on projects or activities that address educational and extension needs in the management of California's renewable resources. Interns will be funded up to $6,000. Intern proposals must demonstrate the connection to Cooperative Extension (county or campus office).
To apply, access your ANR Portal page - Universal Review System - Open Systems - Summer 2011 RREA Student Intern Proposal. More information on RREA can be found at http://ucanr.org/sites/rrea/.
