TITLE: CONCERNING THE AUTHORIZATION TO DELEGATE POWER OVER PERSONNEL MATTERS IN STATE-SUPPORTED INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION.
Summary of Assessment
The bill permits the governing board of any state-supported institution of higher education to allow the chief executive officer to delegate power over personnel matters to other officers of the institution. The bill is effective upon signature of the Governor.
The bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact because it places no requirements on state-supported institutions of higher education. Rather, it authorizes the delegation of powers regarding personnel matters. The Colorado Commission on Higher Education indicates that the delegation of powers over personnel matters reflects current practice and is necessary depending on the size of the institution.
