This final report discloses that although the University of California, San Francisco's (UCSF) policies were generally consistent with OMB Circular A-21, UCSF did not adequately control and monitor recharge centers to ensure compliance. Specifically, UCSF's Budget and Financial Analysis Office did not provide adequate oversight. As a result, of the eight centers selected for review: (1) eight used unapproved billing rates; (2) six did not submit appropriate rate proposals, and (3) once charged differential rates to users.
