The conduct of research at the University of California, Davis is governed by the rules and policies promulgated by several jurisdictions—the Federal and State governments, the UC Office of the President, the Academic Senates of both the University of California system and the Davis campus, as well as the administration of UC Davis. This section of the Office of Research website provides information on the variety of such rules, regulations, and policies.
The UC Davis Policy & Procedure Manual (PPM) is issued by the Offices of the Chancellor and Provost and is the official source for UC Davis policies and implementing procedures. Policies apply to all units under the jurisdiction of UC Davis, whether located in Davis, in Sacramento, or at off-site locations, unless otherwise noted.
