The principal sources of information regarding the University of California's finances reside at the Office of the President's Finance Office. This is the main repository for such public documents as the Annual Financial Reports, the A-133 Audit Reports, the Campus Financial Schedules, the Retirement System Annual Reports and many other documents.

The purpose of the UC InfoCenter Finance section is to present data and analysis of UC's fiscal operations in new formats, such as interactive dashboards, or in specific areas that are not covered in depth by the UC Finance Office. The University's research enterprise is a particular focus of the InfoCenter, including a series of dashboards, data tables, and analytical reports.
