UCLM’s audit report 2013-2014
The audit report of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) for the years 2013 and 2014, made public by the Court of Auditors (TCu), urges the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha to approve a multiannual funding plan to enable the university to have reliable funding forecasts so that it can draw up a strategic plan.
