Revisions to the UC Policy on Vehicle and Driver Selection

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Sarah Latham, Vice Chancellor, Business and Administrative Services, and Jean Marie Scott, Associate Vice Chancellor, Risk and Safety Services

The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed revision to Presidential Policy on the Use of Vehicles and Driver Selection (BFB-BUS-46). The revised policy addresses the following key issues:
  • The inclusion of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Negligent Operator Treatment System (NOTS) as a standard for eligibility to drive on behalf of the University.
  • Implementation will apply to all drivers on University business – not solely employees.
  • Establishment of Vehicle Collision Review Committees to review collisions, determine preventability, and promote driver safety awareness.
  • Establishment of guidelines for drivers involved in preventable collisions including training, suspension, and potential revocation of driving privileges.
The proposed policy is available online.

If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact the Policy Coordination Office at by the end of business on December 14, 2018.
