The Statewide IPM Project is a part of the UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The project, headed by a director, reports to the DANR Associate Vice President for Programs. An associate director for research provides liaison with IPM researchers at the various UC campuses and field stations and chairs the project's Technical Committee. The Technical Committee, made up of the chairs of each of the project's research workgroups plus key IPM project personnel, advises the project director on allocation of research funds. The Technical Committee relies to a large degree on the recommendations of the research workgroups, which represent a diversity of UC Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension academic staff, and solicits advice from DANR commodity workgroups.

The project has about 30 permanent staff members. The implementation staff includes eight area or regional IPM advisors located in county or regional offices, including an extension IPM coordinator located at the UC Kearney Agricultural Center in Parlier. The project's administrative office and staff of the grants, computer systems, IPM education and publications, and pesticide education programs are located on the Davis campus.

Numerous advisory committees guide the programmatic areas. Composition of the committees varies, but may include county- and campus-based UC staff, industry representatives, and local, state, and federal agency representatives.
