The University of Alaska (UA) inspires learning, and advances and disseminates knowledge through teaching, research, and public service, emphasizing the North and its diverse peoples.
The University of Alaska is composed of four major units: the system office and three separately accredited institutions, University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), and University of Alaska Southeast (UAS).
The chancellor of each institution reports to the president of the university system, who in turn reports to the Board of Regents. The Board has ten members with eight-year appointments and a student regent with a two-year appointment; all members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the legislature.
System administrators reporting to the president include the university's executives in the areas of finance and administration, university relations, academic affairs and research, information technology, human relations and legal counsel.

Target #1: Unmodified Single Audit (2 CFR 220) Report on Major Federal Programs
Unmodified Single Audit (2 CFR 220) Report on Major Federal Programs
Analysis of results and challenges: The Single Audit (2 CFR 220) focuses on stewardship of federal funds administered by the University. An unmodified opinion on major federal programs is an opinion expressed by independent auditors that states that an entity complied, in all material respects, with federal compliance requirements that could have a direct and material effect on its major federal programs and is performed by independent auditors. This audit is required for continued participation in various major federal programs including Federal Student Aid and many research programs funded by agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Air and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Like the annual independent audit of UA, the results demonstrate compliance with federal rules and regulations and existence of and implementation of a reliable internal control system. This review also reflects performance on a comprehensive compendium of key and complex organizational tasks across the UA system including internal audit, daily checks and balances, supervisory practices, external relationships with federal authorities and accounting, budgeting and cash management.
For 2011 to 2018, the University received unmodified single audit reports on major federal programs. The audit reports are available in November following the close of the University's fiscal year.
