BOARD OF REGENTS

UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

May 13, 1967



The Board of Regents met on the above date in the Travis Lounge

of the Student Union building, Reno Campus. Present were Regents

Anderson, Bell, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen, Lombardi, Magee and Smith;

President Armstrong, Vice Presidents Humphrey and Mordy;

Chancellors Miller and Moyer, Mr. Ed Olsen, Mr. Dan Walsh and

Mr. Ed Pine. Present from the Press were Miss Pat Rogero and

Mrs. Mimi La Plante.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Anderson at 9:30 A.M.



1. Approval of Minutes of Previous Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Smith and unani-

mous vote, the minutes of the meeting of April 8 were

approved as distributed.



2. Proposed Patent Policy



Discussion was continued from the Administrative and Person-

nel Committee of the proposed patent policy statement as

approved by the University Council, Reno Campus, and by the

Nevada Southern University Senate. Dean Anderson was pres-

ent at the request of the Board to discuss some of the

statements in the policy which were in question. Several

of the Regents present expressed concern that no procedure

was outlined in the policy statement which provided for

the distribution of proceeds to the inventory covered under

Item VI. It was felt that if the same distribution as out-

lined in Item VIII is to apply in all cases, the policy

statement should make it clar. There was further concern

expressed concerning the language of the document in that

it applied only to University personnel employed subsequent

to the date of the adoption of the document.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Magee, carried unani-

mously that the patent policy statement be referred back

to the Administration for further study and clarification

on points discussed and that a patent policy be developed

that would apply to all University personnal as of the

effective date of the adoption of the document.



3. Faculty Organization Plan of the Northern Campus



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the Faculty Organization Plan of the

Northern Campus, as set forth in Faculty Policy Bulletin

#67-10, be approved as submitted.



4. Distinction at Graduation



A recent Class A action by the Reno Campus University

Council, reported to the Faculty in Faculty Policy Bulletin

#67-9, and further clarified in Faculty Information Bulletin

#67-9, concerning the conferring of Distinction at Gradua-

tion was presented to the Board for approval. Approval of

this recommendation would result in the following wording

for the statement in the General Catalog:



"Distinction at Graduation: At Commencement, each graduat-

ing senior whose grade point average is 3.750 or higher

shall receive the Bachelor's Degree with High Distinction.

Each graduating senior whose grade point average is 3.500

or higher but less than 3.750 shall receive the Bachelor's

Degree with Distinction. To be eligible for these awards,

students transferring from other institutions must have a

grade point average of 3.750 or higher for High Distinction

(3.500 or higher but less than 3.750 for Distinction) on

transfer credits accepted by the University of Nevada and

also a grade point average of 3.750 or higher for High

Distinction (3.500 or higher but less than 3.750 for

Distinction) on credits earned in residence at the

University."



Motion by Mr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



5. Open Meeting Law



As a result of reports in the Press that the Board of Re-

gents were holding closed meetings in violation of the

Nevada Open Meeting Law, Chairman Anderson reviewed for

the Regents Attorney General's Opinion No. 380, dated

January 31, 1967, which states "NRS 396.100 applies to

formal assemblages of the whole Board of Regents as a

deliberative body wherein there is joint official delib-

eration and action. This would not include committee

meetings conducted by less than the whole Board, for the

purposes of studying matters that may be presented to the

whole Board for official action."

RESOLUTION #67-5



University of Nevada Purchasing Policy



WHEREAS, Chapter 124, Statutes of Nevada 1967, exempts

the University of Nevada, including its Desert Re-

search Institute, from the general provisions of the

State Purchasing Act (Chapter 333, Nevada Revised

Statutes) and provides that the University may use

the State Purchasing Division on a voluntary basis

for any purchase, and further, that it "shall uti-

lize the facilities of the purchasing division to

obtain:



"1. All items procured by the purchasing division by

open-end contracts, including without limitation

motor vehicles, petroleum products, tires, tubes

batteries and selected office furniture; and



"2. Purchasing division warehouse items catalogued

and in stock;" and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents wishes to provide the

most economical purchasing procedure possible consis-

tent with reasonably rapid delivery, quality, dura-

bility and other factors affecting service and use as

required by the using Department of the University;



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Re-

gents states that its purchasing policy is as follows:



1. Board Approval Required. No purchase order ex-

ceeding $5,000 may be issued until approved by

the Board of Regents.



2. In-State Preference. To the extent practicable,

service, price and quality being considered, all

purchases shall be made from vendors within the

State. The University Purchasing Department and

Desert Research Institute, when making direct

purchases, shall follow the provisions of Chapter

420, Statutes of Nevada 1967, which provides as

follows:



A. In awarding contracts for furnishing supplies,

materials or equipment either directly or

through a contractor or subcontractor, to the

State of Nevada or any political subdivision

thereof, to be paid for from public funds, a

bidder who furnishes such commodities produced

or manufactured in the State shall be awarded

the contract in preference to any competing

bidder who furnishes such commodities not

produced or manufactured in the State whenever

the bid of the competing bidder, taking into

consideration comparative quality and suita-

bility is less than:



(1) Five percent lower, if the amount of the

bid is less than $50,000.



(2) Two and one-half percent lower, if the

amount of the bid is $50,000 or more, but

less than $500,000.



(3) One and one-half percent lower, if the

amount of the bid is $500,000 or more.



B. In awarding contracts for furnishing supplies,

materials or equipment, either directly or

through a contractor or subcontractor, to the

State of Nevada or any political subdivision

thereof, the contract shall be awarded to a

bidder who furnishes such commodities supplied

by a dealer who is a resident of the State and

who has for not less than 2 successive years

immediately prior to submitting the bid paid

State and County taxes within the State on a

stock of materials of the kind offered and

reasonably sufficient in quantity to meet the

requirements of customers from such stock, in-

stead of shipping stock into the State to fill

orders previously taken, in preference to a

competing bidder who furnishes such commodi-

ties not supplied by such a resident dealer

whenever the bid of the competing bidder, tak-

ing into consideration comparative quality and

suitability, is less than:



(1) Five percent lower, if the amount of the

bid is less than $50.000.



(2) Two and one-half percent lower, if the

amount of the bid is $50,000 or more, but

less than $500,000.



(3) One and one-half percent lower, if the

amount of the bid is $500,000 or more.



C. When and to the extent that there is a con-

flict with any applicable Federal statute or

regulation the above in-state preference

regulation shall not apply.



3. Vendors List. The University Purchasing Depart-

ment shall maintain a list of all persons and

firms who wish to bid on University purchases.

The list shall be classified by type of item sup-

plied. Invitations to bid shall be sent to all

who have requested to be placed on the list and to

such others as may be determined necessary to

stimulate competition.



4. Basic Purchasing Procedure. All material, sup-

plies and equipment shall be purchased from the

lowest and best bidder after giving due consider-

ation to quality, availability and service.



A. Single item or conglomerate purchases from a

single vendor, the estimated cost of which

exceeds $1,000 shall be purchased after:



(1) the Purchasing Department advertises for

bids at least once in a newspaper of gen-

eral circulation in the area of the

Campus to be supplied and not less than

10 days prior to opening bids;



(2) gives written notice to all pertinent

vendors on the "vendors list"; and



(3) publicly opens, reads aloud and records

sealed bids.



B. All other purchases shall be made by the Pur-

chasing Department after following generally

accepted purchasing procedures for the econom-

ical and timely procurement of materials, sup-

plies and equipment. Written records of all

formal bids of informal "quotes" shall be made

and retained for five years.



C. With the written permission of the Vice Presi-

dent-Finance the procedure described in "B"

above may be followed for purchases of $1,000

or more if an emergency exists which, if not

resolved, might endanger the health and safety

of students or employees of the University or

the general public. In any such case a full

written record shall be made of the circum-

stances.



D. There shall be Purchasing Departments on both

the University of Nevada Campus and the Nevada

Southern University Campus.



5. Desert Research Institute Purchases.



A. Open-end contract items and items catalogued

and in stock in the State Purchasing Division

warehouse shall be procured by use of regular

University purchase orders through the Univer-

sity Purchasing Department.



B. The Desert Research Institute may make other

purchases from non-appropriated funds in

either of the following ways:



(1) In conformity with general University

purchasing procedures through the Univer-

sity Purchasing Department; or



(2) A Desert Research Institute project

principal investigator may use a special

Desert Research Institute purchase order

without going through the University Pur-

chasing Department. The special Desert

Research Institute purchase order must

clear the Controller's Office for encum-

brance purposes. The Director of the

Desert Research Institute may require a

principal investigator to file a memoran-

dum of justification for such purchases.



6. Scientific Equipment. Faculty may designate the

specific manufacturer of scientific equipment or-

dered but the Purchasing Department shall have the

responsibility of securing competition of vendors

whenever possible.



7. Printing. All printing orders shall be processed

through the University Press and Publications Of-

fice (Reno) or the Director of Publications and

Press Relations (NSU). At the discretion of

either of these offices printing orders may be

referred to the University Purchasing Department.

Printing shall be purchased with due consideration

given to quality, availability, economy and serv-

ice and in conformity with the following:



A. All provisions of the Nevada Revised Statues

pertaining to printing and the State Printing

Office shall be observed. In those situations

where University printing cannot be performed

by the State Printing Office, the University

may solicit private printing upon written

permission of the State Printing Office.



B. Except as provided below, all single item or

conglomerate purchases from a single vendor,

estimated cost of which exceeds $1,000, shall

be purchased only after solicitation of at

least three written bids.



C. Hard-cover books published by the University

Press, the estimated cost of which exceeds

$5,000, shall be contracted for only after

solicitation of at least three written bids.



D. Printing costing less than the above described

limits may be purchased without competitive

estimates after following generally accepted

printing purchasing procedures for the econom-

ical and timely procurement of printing.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the recommendation of the Committee be ap-

proved by the Board.



(13) Work Program for 1967-68



Motion by Mr. Bell, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval and adoption of the 1967-68

Work Program as prepared by Mr. Humphrey and recom-

mended by President Armstrong.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried unani-

mously that the Work Program for 1967-68 be adopted as

presented. Special note was taken of the recommendations

contained in the following transmittal letter from Mr.

Humphrey:



The Legislature provided 11 separate appropriations for

University operations for 1967-68; however, one appro-

priation for classified and technical salary adjustments

and hospitalization insurance adjustments was for alloca-

tion amoung 4 other functional areas. The summary of the

$16,364,784 of appropriations and authorized expenditures

work programmed for FY 1967-68 is on the schedule follow-

ing this transmittal letter.



No transfers are legally possible between separate appro-

priations. Should emergencies arise solutions must be

found within the specific functional budget group. This

problem, coupled with the modest contingency reserves es-

tablished in the 2 educational program areas and the com-

plete lack of contingency reserves in Statewide Programs

(Research and Extension) and General Administration, em-

phasizes the need for effective position control. I recom-

mend that the Board of Regents be requested to reaffirm the

policy that all salary savings in all salary accounts ac-

cruing after professional contracts are issued shall revert

to the appropriate contingency reserve. Transfers from

the contingency reserve would be processed as at present;

i. e., approval of the cognizant Chancellor, the President

and, if over $2,000, the Board of Regents.



The Executive Budget included a revenue account of $168,000

which was 100% of the research indirect cost allocation

rather than the 25% budgeted by the University. The Legis-

lature, in establishing the authorized expenditure for

the educational program areas, did not decrease the total

revenue estimate; however, a special letter of Legislative

intent was issued which concurred in the Board of Regents'

earlier resolution to credit 25% of indirect costs to Educa-

tional Programs. I have provided the mechanics for the

solution of this apparent conflict of instructions by budg-

eting the total authorized expenditure in Educational Pro-

grams located at the University of Nevada and establishing

a $126,000 (i. e., 75% of $168,000) "Reserve for Desert

Research Institute Indirect Costs". This will allow the

current practice of allocation of this revenue to continue

and 25% will be credited to Educational Programs located

at the University of Nevada and the remaining 75% will be

available to the project leader and the Desert Research

Institute as at present.



It will be noted that the Nevada Southern Technical Insti-

tute was not included in the authorized expenditure act.

This resulted from the fact that the budget submitted did

not include any receipts from student fees or Federal sub-

ventions. The proposed Work Program budgets the Federal

subvention now anticipated; however, student fees will be

accumulated and budgeted in FY 1968-69 as an opening cash

balance.



Also worthy of note is the fact that the Agricultural Ex-

periment Station and Agricultural Extension Service both

anticipate larger non-appropriated monies than provided

in the authorized expenditure act and FY 1967-68 work

programs have been increased accordingly.



I recommend the approval of the attached Fiscal Year 1967-68

Work Programs and adoption by the Board of Regents.



(14) Social Science Building Furniture



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried

without dissent that the Committee recommend to the

Board that President Armstrong be empowered to concur

on behalf of the University in the award of the pur-

chase order for the furniture for the Effie Mona Mack

Social Science building by the State Purchasing Divi-

sion and the State Planning Board. This recommenda-

tion is made to expedite the award of the purchase

order since the bids will be opened May 24 and the

Board is not scheduled to meet until June 2.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried by

roll call vote that the reommendation of the Committee be

approved by the Board.



(15) Purchase in Excess of $5,000



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend

to the Board the approval of the following purchase

in excess of $5,000: A Read-Write Incremental Magnet-

ic Tape Recorder for $6,000 for the Laboratory of

Atmospheric Physics, Desert Research Institute. This

tape deck must be compatible with the PDP-8 computer

and will be fabricated to specification by Precision

Instrument Company of Palo Alto. It was noted that

the U. S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Reclama-

tion has authorized this purchase under contract

#14-06-D-5995.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried by roll

call vote that the recommendation of the Committee be ap-

proved by the Board.



(16) NSU Library Drapes



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

without dissent that the Committee recommend that the

Board concur in the award of a bid by the William

Morrow Company of Sacramento in the amount of $6,006

to provide drapes for the addition of the NSU Library.

It was noted that the only other legal bid received

was from Town and Country Interiors (Las Vegas) for

$8,347.87. The State Purchasing Division has recom-

mended the award to William Morrow Company.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the recommendation of the Committee be approved

by the Board.



(17) Transfer of Funds



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

without dissent that the Committee recommend to the

Board the approval of the following transfers of funds

to the Stead Campus Buildings and Grounds:



1. $5,374.52 from the Board of Regents Special Proj-

ects (1-51-4056) which is the balance of income to

be earned by the account before June 30.

endowment income accounts before June 30 estimated

as follows:

Alice Dimmitt (1-51-7002) 5,088.32

Lowell Daniels (1-51-7003) 380.36

Hayden Ellicott (1-51-7004) 6,253.78

A. B. Christensen (1-51-7005) 5,503.32

$18,111.48



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried unani-

mously that the transfer of funds be approved as recommended

by the Committee.

It was agreed that the State Planning Board was to make

additional modifications in order that the contract

price would not exceed $1,435,000. These deductions

could include addition to present dining hall, interior

pool, louvres and modification of stairs.



Chancellor Moyer stated that these revisions had been

discussed with the students and they are in agreement.



An additional $190,000 will be needed to complete the

landscaping, parking and roadway. Chancellor Moyer

stated that this item will have top priority in a

request to the next legislative session.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval of the present plans as revised

for the Student Union building at Nevada Southern

University and that the bid be awarded to J. A. Tiberti

Construction Company, Inc. at a negotiated price of

$1,435,000. Attorney General to approve this award.



Mr. Jacobsen stated that in reference to the contract for

the Student Union building at NSU, he wished to point out

that the University's original construction budget was in

the amount of $1,140,000. He further stated that the Plant

and Property Committee on May 12 approved a budget of

$1,435,000. The total project budget is for $1,725,000.

Mr. Jacobsen continued by saying, "In presenting this

project for final approval to the Board, I want to point

out that a negotiated contract will leave the University

with a building less complete than the Board had in mind

when we approved the final plan.



"The architect, Jim Mc Daniel, represented to the Plant and

Property Committee that if the project were redesigned to

be re-bid, that the same items deleted or changed in the

negotiated contract would be deleted or changed in the

revised plans.



"We were assured by both the architect and Bill Hancock,

State Planning Board Manager, that they believed that the

cost of the negotiated contract is equitable and substan-

tially near the price that would result from the usual re-

bidding process. We were also assured that the unsuccess-

ful bidders take no exception to this procedure.



"The State Planning Board Manager has stated that the At-

torney General has previously approved the concept of

negotiating downward with the lowest bidder.



"Chancellor Moyer has stated that he and his staff are

satisfied with the revised plans and he is anxious for

final approval. He assures us that he has discussed this

with the students at NSU who will be using and largely

paying for this facility and they find it acceptable.



"Chancellor Moyer has told us that he is aware of the need

to landscape the whole area surrounding this facility, to

complete the roadway to Maryland Parkway, and to have the

parking lot, all at a cost of approximately $190,000. He

stated that this item will have top priority in his request

to the Board of Regents in developing the next capital

improvement program. In view of these assurances and

after much deliberation, and subject to the final review

of the State Planning Board and the Attorney General, the

Plant and Property Committee voted to approve the nego-

tiated contract and I move that this action now become the

action of the Board of Regents."



Seconded by Mr. Grant, carried unanimously.

12. Legislative Program Report



Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, the

following final legislative program report for the 1967

Legislative Session was accepted.



Legislation Enacted



1. Program and Facility Planning



A. AB 512 authorizes the State Planning Board, with

the concurrence of the Board of Regents, to contract

for "educational consulting services relating to

the determination of the future needs and the plan-

ning of necessary programs and facility needs at the

University." The contracts may be for terms up to

5 years and the fee may not exceed 1/2 of 1% of the

total value of building construction contracts dur-

ing the term and in the area covered by the con-

tract. Presumably the fee would come from the money

authorized for construction of the buildings.



B. ACR 16 approves the establishment of the Nevada

Advisory Committee for Higher Education Planning.

This committee will participate in the comprehen-

sive planning project to be undertaken with

Federal funds.



C. SB 493 requires the University to prepare 2 5-year

plans (7-1-69 to 6-30-74 and 7-1-74 to 6-30-79)

showing:



(1) any anticpated new programs and expansions

of existing programs of instruction or re-

search, itemized by year and by purpose;



(2) the anticipated cost of each new or expanded

program;



(3) the amount and source of any moneys antici-

pated to be available from sources other

than legislative appropriation to meet each

item of anticipated cost; and



(4) any further information concerning its com-

prehensive planning which the Board of

Regents may deem appropriate.



The plans must be submitted to the Legislature not

later than January 30, 1969 and must biennially be

brought up to date for the "ensuing and next suc-

ceeding 5-year periods respectively".



2. Land Acquisition



A. AB 463, as amended, empowers the Board of Regents

to acquire by condemnation certain described lands

in Little Valley (Washoe County) and adjacent to

Nevada Southern University.



B. SB 373 empowers the Board of Regents to "purchase

real property for cash only or by making a cash

down payment and executing or assuming an obliga-

tion to pay the remainder of the price in deferred

installments." The bill provides that the "obli-

gation may be secured by a mortgage or deed of

trust of the real property acquired, but shall not

constitute an obligation of the State of Nevada."



C. SB 475 authorizes the formation of the NSU Land

Foundation and provides the mechanics for Founda-

tion debentures to be considered municipals and,

therefore, their interest income to be tax exempt.



D. See Capital Improvement Program below.



3. Medical School



A. AB 290 removes the indenture requirement from

WICHE contracts.



B. ACR 15 approves of further planning for a medical

school in Northern Nevada.

purchasing except for items catalogued and in

stock in the State Purchasing Division warehouse

and items on open-end contracts of the State

Purchasing Division.



B. AB 76 requires the University to maintain equipment

and furniture inventory control and records.



C. SB 376 requires preference of up to 5% for in-state

vendors (please see proposed U. N. purchasing policy

5. Insurance and Retirement



A. SB 216 provides workmen's compensation (NIC) cover-

age for University athletes.



B. AB 77 modifies the State's waiver of sovereign im-

munity on behalf of the University and our liabil-

C. SB 322 increases the contribution rate from 5.75%

to 6% of gross salary for both employee and employer

under the State Retirement Plan.

participation in employee hospitalization insurance

from $3 per month to $8.54 per month per covered

employee.



E. SB 81 excludes Agricultural Extension employees

from participating in both State and Federal re-

tirement systems.
