Employee Comment: Electronic Information Security (IS-3)
The policy provides a security framework that protects UC’s Institutional Information and IT Resources from accidental or intentional unauthorized access, loss or damage, while preserving UC’s collaborative academic culture. The policy is critically important for maintaining faculty research funding from certain federal sources that deal with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). The Department of Education has also urged compliance with new, higher standards for processing federally funded student aid. You may refer to the policy summary below and the attached 2-page policy abstract for additional background and information.
Employee Comment: Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)
The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed new policy for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The Policy is to establish minimum standards for the safe use and operation of UAS and Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS), including drones and model aircraft, on any University Location or at any Authorized University Activity. This policy requires that all UAS operations are performed in a manner that mitigates risks to safety, security, and privacy, and ensures compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Public Law 112–95) and all applicable laws.

Employee Comment: Export Controls
The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed new Presidential Policy on Export Controls.
The proposed policy seeks to provide a framework for all University locations to develop further local export control compliance programs that satisfy federal legal requirements while allowing each location the flexibility to develop its own specific requirements and practices. Compliance with Export Controls requires the cooperation and is the responsibility of various offices and individuals across the University system. The proposed policy identifies some of those offices and individuals and describes some of their responsibilities to ensure that the University follows export control laws and regulations.
