Report 2014-121: University of California, Davis: It Has Not Identified Future Financing for the Strawberry Breeding Program nor Collected All Available Revenues (Release Date: June 2015)
Recommendation #3 To: University of California, Davis
To better enable it to effectively monitor and report the financial condition of the strawberry program, UC Davis should implement its plan to begin accounting for the strawberry program's financial activities separately from those of the breeder in fiscal year 2015-16.
60-Day Agency Response
Plant Sciences has moved the Strawberry Breeding Program financial activities into a unique Kuali Organization, separate from those of the breeder. Kuali ORG "ASBP" is the Strawberry Breeding Program ORG code which is a subordinate ORG under ORG "FSJK" which is Steve Knapp's ORG. We will provide the Organization Detail report in support.

California State Auditor's Assessment of 60-Day Status: Fully Implemented
UC Davis provided a report from its financial system, which shows that it created a subordinate organization code for the strawberry program. If UC Davis uses this new code appropriately, it will be able to account for the the strawberry program's financial activities separately from those of the breeder.
