UC Riverside is legally required to adhere to Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA 889), which prohibits the use of equipment made by a limited set of manufacturers. In compliance with this Federal requirement and resulting UCOP guidance, the Chief Compliance Office (CCO) and Information Technology Solutions (ITS) have partnered to develop a compliance plan for campus.

The compliance plan includes a change to networking services, taking place May 2, 2022. This change will affect anyone attempting to make a wired connection to the UCR-secure network using a non-compliant device. The compliance plan also outlines the responsibilities of all campus units that manage any aspect of the network and/or procure equipment and services. It is important to note that the prohibition of these devices applies to all University business and research activity, regardless of the funding source.
