An Audit Report on The Distribution of the National Research University Fund

October 2022


Although the University of Texas at San Antonio’s (University) had processes for reporting restricted research awards and expenditures to the Higher Education Coordinating Board (Coordinating Board), those processes had significant weaknesses. As a result, the University reported expenditures to the Coordinating Board for fiscal years 2020 and 2021 that did not meet the requirements established for the National Research University Fund. The University met other criteria to be eligible for the National Research University Fund.

The Coordinating Board had processes for collecting and analyzing information that the University reported related to the National Research University Fund’s eligibility requirements. The Coordinating Board’s certification report was accurate and supported based on the self-reported information the University provided.
