Sanchez, Oatman and Bunge to serve interim leadership roles

Brian Oatman
UC ANR's controller Jake McGuire, who also served as chief ethics and compliance officer and locally designated official, retired at the end of June 2022. To ensure that these important ethics and compliance roles are continuing, Tu Tran, associate vice president for business operations, has temporarily assigned the responsibilities for these important functions. 

“After careful consideration, I have arrived at an interim leadership structure to address these two important functions,” said Tran. “Effective July 1, 2022, the interim CECO and interim LDO responsibilities will be delegated to Brian Oatman and Robin Sanchez, respectively.”

As Interim CECO, Oatman will facilitate and lead communication of compliance risks and advise senior management on matters of compliance and ethical standards of practice. Oatman comes to this role having served for several years as UC ANR's deputy CECO.

Robin Sanchez
Robin Sanchez will serve as Interim LDO for ANR and will be responsible for the University of California Whistleblower Policy and the University of California Whistleblower Protection Policy. The Whistleblower process and the LDO function are critical components in the University's compliance programming. Sanchez has supported ANR's Whistleblower process for several years and brings valuable experience to this role.

Finally, at Tran's recommendation and with the endorsement of the Senior Leadership team, Jennifer Bunge, executive director for Resource Planning and Management, will assume additional responsibilities as the interim deputy associate vice president for business operations, effective Aug. 1, 2022.

“In this role, Jennifer will provide support to me and the leadership team for a number of critical strategic projects, including the implementation of our future business system and capital financing projects,” Tran said. “In addition, Jennifer will oversee day-to-day management of various units within Business Operations, allowing me to focus on real estate and facility development projects.”

Employee comments invited for Gender Recognition and Lived Name policy

The University of California invites comments on a proposed Presidential Policy: Gender Recognition and Lived Name. It is proposed that the policy be fully implemented by UC campuses and locations by July 1, 2021, and it includes the following key issues: 

  • The University must provide three equally recognized gender options on university-issued documents and information systems — female, male and nonbinary.
  • The University must provide an efficient process for students and employees to retroactively amend their gender designations and lived names on university-issued documents and in information systems.

The legal name of university students, employees, alumni and affiliates, if different than the individual's lived name, must be kept confidential and must not be published on documents or displayed in information systems that do not require a person's legal name.

The proposed policy is posted at https://ucanr.edu/sites/anrstaff/Administration/Business_Operations/Controller/Administrative_Policies_-_Business_Contracts/Policy_and_administrative_handbooks/ANR_Administrative_Handbook/Recent_Updates/.

If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at rgsanchez@ucanr.edu, no later than May 15, 2020. Please indicate “Gender Recognition and Lived Name” in the subject line.

Employee comment sought on proposed policy on conflicts of interest

The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed new Presidential Policy on Disclosure of Financial Interests and Management of Conflicts of Interest in Private Sponsors of Research and proposed revised APM - 028, Disclosure of Financial Interest in Private Sponsors of Research.

This new policy provides the core parameters for continued compliance with the regulations issued by the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC). Effective July 22, 2015, the FPPC revised its regulations that affect review of Statements of Economic Interests for Principal Investigators (also known as the Form 700-U). The University will continue its long-standing practice of performing a substantive review of Forms 700-U. However, this new policy will provide the UC campuses, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources greater control over their local processes in reviewing the Forms 700-U.The proposed new presidential policy will govern continued compliance with FPPC regulations and review of Forms 700-U for all University employees, while revised APM - 028 will maintain additional important principles guiding the conduct of sponsored research for academic appointees.

The proposed new Presidential Policy on Disclosure of Financial Interests and Management of Conflicts of Interest in Private Sponsors of Research and the proposed revised APM - 028, Disclosure of Financial Interest in Private Sponsors of Research, are posted under the “Systemwide Review” tab at https://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/academic-personnel-policy/policies-under-review/index.html

If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at rgsanchez@ucanr.edu, no later than June 15, 2018.

Comments sought on proposed policy for Crime Awareness and Campus Security

UC Office of the President invites comments on a proposed new policy for Crime Awareness and Campus Security (Clery Act). The proposed policy can be viewed at http://ucanr.edu/sites/anrstaff/files/271802.pdf.

The Clery Act (otherwise officially known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, section 485 of the Higher Education Act, codified at 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f)) is a federal law requiring colleges and universities across the United States that receive Title IV funding to disclose information about particular crimes on and around their campuses and related policies. It is the policy of the University to comply with its obligations under the Clery Act and California law. 

In accordance with statutory requirements, the University strives to ensure students, faculty and other academic appointees, and staff employees (the “University Community”), have access to accurate information about crimes committed on and around the campus; as well as, access to University wide security policies and related local campus procedures and a confidential reporting process for victims and witnesses. This policy describes roles and responsibilities for the University Community related to compliance with legal requirements regarding crime reporting, awareness and prevention.

If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact Robin Sanchez at rgsanchez@ucanr.edu, no later than Nov. 10, 2017. Please indicate “Clery Act Policy” in the subject line.
