SB820 imposes significant restrictions for contracting out in buildings that have received capital state funding. As a condition for UC Berkeley receiving state capital funding, contracting out for covered services is not permissible. There are no exceptions. In addition, Chancellor Christ must submit Certifications at the completion of each project which are submitted to the State to certify outsourcing of covered services did not occur.
Once a building has received state capital funding, it will always be deemed an SB 820, even after the capital improvement project is completed.
Failure to comply with SB 820 may cause the University and the entire UC System to lose critical, invaluable state capital funding and subject the UC System to extreme scrutiny and additional measures for receiving state funds.
Employees who fail to follow these guidelines may be subject to disciplinary action.
