The University of California maintains and operates a comprehensive accounting program in order to meet its stewardship responsibilities and to provide management information to all levels of the University's administration, as well as to State & Federal Officials.
The University, as a public institution, has a special stewardship obligation to process properly and accurately all receipts and disbursements of funds, to account for all financial resources received and used, to ensure that all financial transactions conform to legal requirements and generally accepted accounting principles for colleges and universities, and to provide reports that present to University administrators and the public a complete picture of the University's funds and their uses.
In addition to these stewardship responsibilities, the University's comprehensive accounting program must provide financial information to all levels of University administration for use in planning, budgeting, evaluating the uses of funds, making comparative studies, and other administrative purposes.
