The SDE shall share monthly caseload analyses with the State Department of Social Services (DSS).
(b)
The SDE shall provide quarterly information regarding the sufficiency of funding for Stage 2 and Stage 3 to DSS.

(c)
By September 30 and March 30 of each year, the SDE shall ensure that detailed caseload and expenditure data, through the most recent period for Stage 2 and Stage 3 along with all relevant assumptions, is provided to DSS to facilitate budget development. The detailed data provided shall include actual and projected monthly caseload from Stage 2 scheduled to time off of their transitional child care benefit from the last actual month reported by agencies through the next two fiscal years as well as local attrition experience. DSS shall utilize data provided by the SDE, including key variables from the prior fiscal year and the first two months of the current fiscal year, to provide coordinated estimates in November of each year for each of the three stages of care for preparation of the Governor’s Budget, and shall utilize data from at least the first two quarters of the current fiscal year, and any additional monthly data as they become available for preparation of the May Revision. The DSS shall share its assumptions and methodology with the SDE in the preparation of the Governor’s Budget.

(f)
On or before January 30, 2016, following consultation with the DSS, the SDE shall determine the adequacy of funding appropriated by the Legislature for CalWORKs Stage 2 and Stage 3. If the SDE determines that the Stage 2 appropriation exceeds the current year caseload needs and the Stage 3 appropriation is not sufficient to fully fund its caseload need, then the SDE shall submit a request to the Department of Finance to transfer the excess funds from Schedule (5), CalWORKs Stage 2 child care to Schedule (6), CalWORKs Stage 3 child care. Notwithstanding Section 26.00 or any other provision of law, the Department of Finance may, at its discretion, approve such a transfer.
(g)
Notwithstanding any other provision of law or any other sections of this act, the Department of Finance may augment the appropriation for CalWORKs Stage 3 if the estimate of expenditures, as determined by the SDE, following consultation with the DSS, will exceed the expenditures authorized in Schedule (6).

At the time the report is made, the amount of the appropriation made in Schedule (6) shall be increased by the amount of the augmentation.
(h)
The Director of Finance may, pursuant to subdivisions (f) and (g) of Provision 7, authorize the augmentation of the amount available for expenditure in Schedule (6) by making a transfer from Schedule (5). An augmentation may be authorized not sooner than 30 days after notification in writing of the necessity to exceed the limitations is provided to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or whatever lesser time the chairperson of the joint committee may determine. Any request made by the SDE to augment the CalWORKs Stage 3 appropriation shall be approved only in order to cover increases in costs that are consistent with assumptions of this act. This provision shall not be construed to treat Stage 3 as an entitlement.

Each county participating in a QRIS consortia and in good standing with the California Department of Education (CDE) shall receive a minimum grant amount of $25,000 for this purpose, with remaining funds distributed to consortia based on their proportion of contracts with CDE for infant and toddler child care and development. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the funds appropriated in this schedule shall be available for encumbrance until June 30, 2017.

Provisions:
1.
This appropriation is exempt from Sections 6.00 and 31.00.
2.(a)The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(1)The Regents of the University of California endorsed, on May 21, 2015, the framework for long-term funding agreed upon by the Governor and the President of the University, pursuant to which tuition will not increase in the 2015–16 and 2016–17 academic years and the university will implement reforms to reduce the cost structure of the university and improve access, quality, and outcomes.
(2)The reforms included in the framework endorsed by the Regents will create capacity for all campuses of the university to serve more resident students, including by easing transfer from the community colleges, reducing the amount of time it takes students to complete programs, and using technology and data to improve allocation of available resources.
(3)In addition to the funds included in this appropriation and those described in the framework, other funds, including existing resources that can be redirected to higher priorities, such as those currently being used to provide financial aid to nonresident students, are also available to enable more resident students to enter the university at all of its campuses.
(4)Furthermore, it is the intent of the Legislature that those funds generated by an increase in the number of nonresident students enrolled in the 2015–16 academic year, compared to the number of nonresident students enrolled in the 2014–15 academic year, and increases in nonresident supplemental tuition, as approved by the Regents on May 21, 2015, be used specifically to support an increase in the number of resident students enrolled.
(b)To address immediate needs, the university is expected to enroll, no later than the 2016–17 academic year, at least 5,000 more resident undergraduate students than the number enrolled in the 2014–15 academic year.
(c)If the Regents provide sufficient evidence to the Director of Finance on or before May 1, 2016, to demonstrate that the university will satisfy the expectation enumerated in subdivision (b), the Director of Finance shall increase this appropriation by $25,000,000 and notify the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
2.1.No later than April 1, 2016, the Regents of the University of California shall report to the Director of Finance and, in conformity with Section 9795 of the Government Code, to the Legislature on its use of these funds for targeted support services to increase systemwide and campus four-year and six-year graduation rates and two-year and three-year transfer graduation rates of low-income and underrepresented student populations.

The Regents shall ensure that information is posted on the website of the Office of the President that details subcategories of personnel within the Managers and Senior Professional personnel category and disaggregates all personnel categories by fund source.
2.3.No later than December 10, 2015, the Regents of the University of California shall report to the Director of Finance and, in conformity with Section 9795 of the Government Code, to the Legislature, all of the following:
(a)All university fund sources legally allowable to support costs for undergraduate, graduate academic, and graduate professional education.
(b)The factors the university considers to determine which funds to use for educational activities and how much of those funds to use.
(c)The sources of the funds included in the calculation of expenditures reported pursuant to Section 92670 of the Education Code.
2.4.(a)The Regents of the University of California shall implement further measures to reduce the university’s cost structure.
(b)The Legislature finds and declares that many state employees hold positions with comparable scope of responsibilities, complexity, breadth of job functions, experience requirements, and other relevant factors to those employees designated to be in the Senior Management Group pursuant to existing Regents policy.
(c)(1)Therefore, at a minimum, the Regents shall, when considering compensation for any employee designated to be in the Senior Management Group, use a market reference zone that includes state employees.
(2)At a minimum, the Regents shall identify all comparable positions from the lists included in subdivision (l) of Section 8 of Article III of the California Constitution and Article 1 (commencing with Section 11550) of Chapter 6 of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code.

(b)
