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.

Voice and Data Plan Reimbursement

Q: Can you clarify the policy currently in effect for the reimbursement for business use of personal iPhones, iPads and cell phone service (data plans and call charges)? I understand that the IRS determination that all such devices will be considered as personal expenses and that eligible employees will receive a flat monthly allowance for business use has not yet been implemented in the UC system. What about faculty who request reimbursement for data plans for multiple devices? iPhones and iPads are increasingly common business tools, but how many plans can the University be expected to cover for a single individual?

We are collecting feedback through May 31 regarding topics under consideration for future sessions. If you would like to participate, please complete the brief survey at: http://goo.gl/Ri9vTiSurvey respondents who provide their contact information will be entered in a drawing for a glass etched with the UCB seal. The winner will be announced in June.
