To ensure that it sets self-supported extended education fees in accordance with state law and Executive Order 1054, CSU Sacramento should immediately take the following action: revise its student fee policy to specifically require the development, appropriate consideration, and retention of statements of revenues and expenditures when establishing or adjusting future fees for extended education courses and programs.
The student fee policy and procedures were revised on January 13, 2014. Please see the attached documents or linked on our Student Fee Advisory Committee webpage at http://www.csus.edu/aba/sfac/.
CSU Sacramento's Student Fee Policy, effective January 13, 2014, states in part:
** "The review process includes the development of a statement of revenues and expenditures for consideration by the President ... prior to establishing, adjusting, or abolishing a campus student fee."
** "The associate vice president for Budget Planning and Administration or his/her designee is responsible to conduct a review of the reason for the [fee] request, the proposed fees, and the required revenue and expenditure statements. ... For extended education courses and programs, development, appropriate consideration, and retention of statements of revenues and expenditures is required when establishing or adjusting fees."
** "All supporting documents provided for the fee submittal and the President's approval/denial memo will be retained per the campus' retention policy."
†Response Type refers to the interval in which the auditee is providing the State Auditor with their status in implementing recommendations made in an audit report. Auditees must submit a response regarding their progress in implementing recommendations from our reports at three intervals from the release of the report: 60 days, six months, and one year or subsequent to one year.
*Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
