Contracting Out for Covered Services


The University of California is committed to maintaining a strong in-house workforce and supporting living wages and benefits for employees. To reinforce this commitment, the UC Board of Regents approved Regents Policy 5402, which generally prohibits contracting for services and ensures equitable treatment for any allowable contract workers.

In addition, the AFSCME collective bargaining agreement contains language that reinforces, and in some cases goes beyond the Regents Policy. Article 5 of the AFSCME collective bargaining agreement takes precedence over the Regents Policy.

The Covered Services contracting out policies outlined on this series of web pages do not apply in the case where a non-UC facility is being used for the contracting out request.
