As a public advocate, UCAN is committed to transparency in both our operations and our finances. This page includes documents that detail key information, including: where our funding comes from; how it is used; staff compensation; contractor compensation; costs of litigation and rate cases; and so on.
Since 2011 UCAN’s finances have received heightened scrutiny. This stemmed from allegations of impropriety and ensuing investigations initiated by law enforcement and regulatory authorities. Since the time of those allegations, UCAN’s staff, management, and Board have all turned over 100%, and UCAN’s current leadership have adopted a policy of complete transparency in our work so that we may return our focus to advocating on behalf of consumers for fair utility rates and practices.
Audited Financial Statements
Unlike public corporations, UCAN is not required by law to have independent financial audits completed annually, except in years when we take in more than $2 million in revenues. When we do complete such audits, we believe the results should be public.
IRS Tax Filings (Form 990)
As a 501(c)(3) UCAN is exempt from paying taxes on revenue that falls within our non-profit charter. Form 990 is how non-profits provide the IRS with very detailed information on sources and uses of funds. These filings are publicly available through the IRS and made conveniently available here as part of our commitment to transparency.
