To help improve accountability in the university's budget process, and to help minimize the risk of unfair damage to its reputation, the university should take additional steps to increase the transparency of its budget process. Specifically, the Office of the President should continue to implement the proposed revisions to its budget process.
The university stated that it has implemented proposed revisions to its budget process for fiscal year 2011-12. Specifically, it stated that these changes resulted in individual campuses retaining all student tuition and fee revenue, all research indirect cost recovery funds, and all other campus-generated funds.
