Caltrans, the Energy Commission, Food and Agriculture, and Health Care Services should put in writing those policies and procedures related to intellectual property that they believe are necessary and appropriate to enable their staff to identify, manage, and protect their intellectual property.
In June 2012 Caltrans issued a written policy related to ownership and use of its intellectual property. Further, Caltrans stated that it issued interim guidelines in October 2012 to assist its managers and employees to better manage and protect Caltrans' intellectual property. Finally, Caltrans stated that it will modify its interim guidelines as its program develops and General Services issues direction per Assembly Bill 744 (AB 744) [Chapter 463, Statutes of 2012], which was signed by the governor in September 2012. (See 2013-406, p. 35)
