Rumor on police stops has no basis

Rumors that police officers may stop drivers to check for proof they are going to work for essential businesses are unfounded, according to the UTA Police Department.

The shelter-in-place orders provide no legal requirement for individuals to carry letters from their employers or for officers to request them. There are several exceptions to these orders allowing travel other than employment.

Alternative approval methods

UTA is temporarily accepting an alternative methodology for obtaining signatures for approval.

The following information does not apply to timekeeping. Please see the timesheet instructions.

For all other forms/approvals, if you are unable to obtain physical signatures or electronic Adobe signatures at this time on any Business Affairs forms, please use the following submission method using your UTA email only:

  • Employees should email the form to the level review/approver. Include in the email the following statement: “I certify that the information contained in the attached BF-XXX-X## form is true, correct, and accurately reflects data related to UTA's business operations."
  • In addition to reviewing the form for accuracy, next level reviewer/approver should review and ensure that the email was sent from their employee’s UTA email account and contains the above certification.
  • After reviewing, the reviewer/approver should forward the email to the departmental process or to Business Affairs personnel or the office's generic emails and include the following statement: “I have reveiwed and approved the information in the attached (name of form) and certify it is correct, complete, and accurately reflects the data necessary for UTA business operations."
