This article presents an evaluation of the funding model of state universities in the State of Sao Paulo in a context of growing demand for high quality higher education, the improvement of the position of these universities in international rankings and the growth pressures on the budget of the educational sector of the State of Sao Paulo. Since 1989, the State Universities in the State of Sao Paulo have their revenues linked to the collection of the Tax on the Circulation of Goods and Services – ICMS (acronym in Portuguese). However, the universities have a major weakness in their revenues links, as these are established each year by the Budget Guidelines Law of the State.
