UCOP is committed to implementing all of the California State Auditor's recommendations in a thorough and transparent manner.

UC president Janet Napolitano

Thank you for visiting this website, which is designed to provide a transparent view into our implementation of the California State Auditor’s recommendations made to UCOP as part of the audit of UCOP expenditures released in April of 2017. We accept, and already have begun implementing, all 33 recommendations that the auditor made to my office.

The recommendations, largely about transparency and best practices, are constructive. They will be implemented thoroughly and on time, and we will report back at regular intervals to the Legislature and the UC Board of Regents. Beyond that reporting, I hope this website, which we will update regularly, provides you a view into our progress and our broader commitment to continuous improvement.

The hallmark of institutional excellence is the eagerness, and resolve, to continually improve. That is what the University of California has been doing for nearly 150 years.

Janet Napolitano
