AB 2505, as amended, Santiago. California State University: budget oversight policies.
Existing law establishes the California State University, under the administration of the Board of Trustees of the California State University, as one of the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in California. Existing law requires the trustees to appoint a chief executive officer, known as the Chancellor of the California State University.
This bill would require the Office of the Chancellor of the California State University to require each California State University campus to develop and implement budget oversight policies, as specified. The bill would require each campus to, on or before January 15, 2019, and on or before January 15 of each academic year thereafter, submit to the chancellor’s office a summary report of its expenditures of state appropriations received for the most recent academic year before the report. The bill would require the chancellor’s office to, on or before March 31, 2019, and on or before March 31 of each academic year thereafter, submit a statewide report to the Legislature and the Department of Finance based on these campus reports.
