Under Section 85(1) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP Act), the president of the university may delegate any decision-making authority to another person, except the power to delegate.
A delegation order must be in writing and remains in effect until replaced.
The authority is assigned to the position, not the person in the position. Therefore, a new person in the position does not need a new delegation order.
Anyone to whom authority has been delegated cannot re-delegate this authority.
