The Short Term Investment Pool (STIP) was established in FY76 as a cash investment pool available to all UC fund groups.

STIP allows fund participants to maximize the returns on their short-term cash balances by taking advantage of the economies of scale of investing in a larger pool. STIP consists primarily of current funds slated for payroll and operating/construction expenses for all UC campuses and medical centers.

In addition, funds awaiting permanent investment in one of the long-term pools are invested in STIP to earn maximum daily interest until transferred.
