Summarized are each of these organizations' authoritative roles and fiscal responsibilities. Other federal, state, and local agencies that have varying amounts of authority over elements of community college operation include: (1) the Environmental Protection Agency; (2) the Federal Emergency Management Authority; (3) the Seismic Safety Commission; (4) the California Compensation Insurance Fund; (5) the Social Security Administration; and (6) OccupationalSafety and Health.
