Board Policy and operating guidelines call for employees of the TBR - College System of Tennessee and it's colleges to notify the Chancellor prior to making funding* and/or policy requests to legislators. Notification of meetings between college leadership and local, state, or federal officials is also requested.
Additionally, Board guidance requires employees to notify the System Office if they become aware that a funding proposal relating to the TBR or one of its colleges may be presented to state officials by non-TBR employees.
The form should be filled out as much in advance as possible.
*TCA 49-7-1002 and TBR Policy 1:10:00:00 contain provisions requiring that all employees of the Tennessee Board of Regents notify the System Office prior to submitting a funding request to state legislators.
