The supervisor is the University official designated by the Executive Vice President and Provost to review conflict of interest and compensated outside services approvals/ disclosures for academic and administrative faculty in a given unit. For faculty in academic departments or schools, the supervisor is the department chair or school director, and these supervisors are expected to review conflict of interest/compensated outside services approvals/ disclosures for their faculty members directly.
For academic and administrative faculty in a college but not a department or school, the supervisor is the dean, who may delegate this authority to an associate dean in the college or school. For academic or administrative faculty in an area under the Provost outside a college, the supervisor is the relevant vice provost. For academic or administrative faculty in support divisions, this is the relevant vice president (or the General Counsel), and these supervisors may delegate this authority one reporting level down, to an associate vice president or comparably ranked official.
For all vice presidents, deans and vice provosts, the supervisor is the Executive Vice President and Provost (EVPP). For the EVPP, the supervisor is the President. For the President, as per NSHE Code Title 4, Chapter 3, Section 8, the supervisor is the Chancellor.
In all cases, the relevant dean or vice president is responsible, under NSHE Code 4.3.9, to maintain requests, approvals and disclosures as confidential documents and part of the personnel dossier.
