New Policies and Procedures
Policies (and some procedures) that have gone through the two week comment period, standard review process and have been endorsed by President's Cabinet, become official Finance and Operations policies after being signed by the President. New policies are listed here.
Transport, Shipment and Receipt of Hazardous Materials and Dangerous Goods (6.22)
Posted: December 3, 2014
President Kelley signed UND policy 6.22, Transport, Shipment and Receipt of Hazardous Materials and Dangerous Goods, on December 1. This final approval replaces the interim approval granted on May 27, 2014.
Policy Statement: The use of hazardous materials (e.g., laboratory chemicals, dry ice, radioactive materials, compressed gases, biological agents; equipment or instruments that contain hazardous materials, lithium batteries, and other rechargeable batteries) is an integral part of research and other operating units at the University of North Dakota (UND). At times, it is necessary to ship these materials to a colleague, another facility, back to the manufacturer, to a field site, or other similar locations. When shipped, hazardous materials and dangerous goods must be correctly classified, packaged, labeled, marked, and accompanied by appropriate paperwork.
The Department of Public Safety provides oversight, and coordinates training, shipping, and receiving of hazardous materials and dangerous goods for UND. All hazardous materials/dangerous goods must be shipped and transported safely, and in compliance with the rules and regulations of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), and other regulatory agencies. University personnel who ship hazardous materials and dangerous goods must be properly trained in accordance with 49 CFR 100-199 regulations. UND will conduct hazardous material shipping training on a bi-annual basis. Only properly trained University employees are allowed to ship or transport hazardous materials.
This policy applies to faculty and staff initiating or authorizing the shipment of hazardous materials, or otherwise having a role in the shipping of hazardous materials, as well as faculty and staff who transport hazardous materials or are responsible for hazardous materials storage (such as store room personnel).
Reason for Policy: The shipment, transport, and receipt of hazardous materials and dangerous goods may pose potential environmental, public health, national security, and commercial risks, and as such, all hazardous materials and dangerous goods shipments must comply with the US Department of Transportation shipping regulations under 49 CFR § 100-199 and the guidelines established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
To comply with shipping regulations, hazardous materials and dangerous goods must be properly classified, packaged, documented, and handled by trained employees. Failure to meet these requirements may result in delays, loss of research samples, and potential regulatory fines.

Posted: October 10, 2014
President Kelley signed UND policy 2.27, Parking, on October 3. This final approval replaced the most recent interim approval granted on July 8, 2014.
Additionally, UND has contracted with SP+ University Services to do an assessment of the parking enterprise this fall.
SP+ University Services will arrange site visits to survey and collect data pertaining to the processes and operations of parking facilities and programs. The study will review current programs, services, procedures and policies from an operational perspective and make recommendations based on industry best practices, identified peer institutions and the special needs, objectives, resources and operating environment of UND.
The consultant's report will focus on:
- Parking allocation system and permitting practices
- Organizational structure
- Technology utilization
- Costs and fees assessment
- Enforcement culture
- Customer orientation and service culture
SP+ will also evaluate current construction and development in the context of access management and make recommendations for improvement.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to participate in SP+ activities and surveys as an avenue to provide additional input on UND's parking enterprise.
Parking Policy Statement: Any motorized vehicle operated on the property of the University of North Dakota is subject to all regulations governing parking at the institution. All campus parking may be restricted to vehicles with permits which authorize parking in that area or where the pay-as-you-go fee has been paid. Parking enforcement is conducted year-round, 24 hours per day.
Reason for Policy: The regulation of parking is a service to the University, and is intended to protect student, staff, and faculty pedestrian mobility; use available parking space in the best interests of the entire University; and maximize parking area consistent with land needs for the academic function, topography, financial feasibility, and maintenance of the natural beauty of the campus.
