UC hasn't complied with spending disclosure law

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The University of California has failed to comply with a state law that requires the public institution show how it spends its money.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports UC had more than a year to report how much it spends to educate undergraduates versus graduates, on research, and how much money from each funding source goes to each area. The disclosure was due by Oct. 1, but so far UC has only submitted a 7-page preliminary report.

State officials want the data to understand how much tuition UC should charge, what size of enrollment should be and to provide transparency.

UC President Janet Napolitano says UC is not trying to skirt the law's mandate, and insists the system's expenditures "don't break out as neatly as they would like."
