Welcome to Audit and Advisory Services

Welcome to Audit and Advisory Services online where our goal is to serve you, the campus community, by “Bridging the Gap” between you and the accomplishment of UC Berkeley’s mission through excellence in governance, risk management, and control. We hope that as you navigate our web site you will find bridges to answer questions about who we are, how we can serve you, and what resources are available to facilitate your success. We encourage you to visit our web site often as we will continually update information, including “Bridging the Gap” sessions; guidelines for internal control; best practices and risk mitigation procedures; control self-assessment toolsThe Bridge newsletter; and other material that we believe will be valuable to UC Berkeley management, faculty, staff, and students.

Using Your Restricted Gift Funds with Nancy Lubich McKinney and Allison De Gros (Course Code: BEAUD006-170316)

Private philanthropic support is increasingly important to UC Berkeley, but not all philanthropic support is unrestricted. In making gifts, donors sometimes provide us with specific guidance regarding their philanthropic intentions, and it is our shared responsibility to ensure that we fulfill those intentions. In this session, we will provide a brief description of how we come to understand and document donor intentions, explain the difference between unrestricted and restricted funds, define restrictions and preferences, and illuminate the data and tools that are available in BAIRS and the Campus Advancement Database System (CADS) to help you in spending these funds.

Advance registration is required  Please go to Bridging the Gap for details on how to register and the schedule of future sessions. 

The purpose of the "Bridging the Gap" series is to allow UC Berkeley thought leadership, faculty, and staff to excel together by providing a forum to discuss emerging and hot button issues, foster an open exchange, and inform decision makers.
