Abstract
We re ne our proof of the Kummer congruences for the universal
Bernoulli numbers ^
B n to include the case where n  1 (mod p 1).
We also use polylogarithm series to de ne universal poly-Bernoulli
numbers of index k, and we prove universal von Staudt type congru-
ences for these numbers, which strengthen and simplify the congru-
ences for the classical poly-Bernoulli numbers.
