Data Stewardship Responsibilities

Sensitive Data is data whose unauthorized disclosure may have serious adverse effects on the university’s reputation, resources, services, or individuals.  Sensitive Data includes social security numbers, credit card information, and anything else that can be used to facilitate identity theft.  It also includes federally protected data such as student information and medical information, as well as passwords, account information, restricted data, and any other unique identification.  UA faculty and staff are responsible for protecting sensitive data to which they have authorized access, as

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) play an important and growing role in agriculture and natural resource teaching, resource, and extension work.  The University of Arizona is developing processes and policies to ensure that this new technology is used safely and in a way that protects the interests of the University.  Prior to the purchase of any UAV by an ALVSCE unit or employee, read and follow the attached memorandum. 

Surplus Property Proceeds

All surplus property must be acquired, used, tracked, and disposed in accordance with the policies found in the UA Property Management Manual.  Individual units are responsible for submitting their UA-owned property and equipment through the Surplus Property Office's online system.

Search Expenses, Directors/Department Heads

    Farm Sales Activities

    Farming and ranching are fundamental to the Division's ability to deliver on our Land Grant mission.  As such, the production of crops, animals, or other mission related products or by-products, including alfalfa, beef, cotton, etc. may be sold to wholesalers, retailers, or to the public so long as the sale of these goods or services are in conformance with ABOR Policy 1-105 Competition with Private Enterprise.

    Carryforward State Funds

    Units and Associate Deans are encouraged to prioritize the spending of state funds first to avoid unnecessarily large state balances when there is no specific savings plan.  Large state balances should not occur given the dire economic needs for resources, and they send the wrong message to our stakeholders.
