The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed revision to Presidential Policy BFB-BUS-46, Use of University Vehicles and Driver Selection Policy. The key issues addressed by the proposed revisions to the Policy include:

  • 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 clean version of the policy can be found here: Vehicle Use Policy Clean Version
