We build a strong foundation for UCOP financial operations by ensuring accountability for and compliance with UC policy.

The Business Resource Center (BRC) aims to build a strong foundation for UCOP financial operations, allowing departments to focus on their core duties. Our goal is to standardize procedures and controls to ensure maximum service to departments, as well as efficient, controlled and compliant transaction processing for administrative functions. BRC staff strive to provide excellent service while demonstrating accountability to stakeholders, including the Regents and the public.
