UC failed to give regents required reports Tuesday, February 28, 2006
Legal settlements, executive pay were to be disclosed
The University of California's administration, under fire for paying employees more than it disclosed to the public, neglected to provide its governing body with required reports on legal settlements, senior managers' corporate board service and executive compensation, The Chronicle has learned.
UC officials are required to provide the reports to the Board of Regents annually under policies approved by the regents and the university's president. But regents have never received a list of legal settlements, and they haven't received the other reports in years.
"It's embarrassing,'' said Republican Sen. Abel Maldonado of Santa Maria (Santa Barbara County), a member of the Senate Education Committee, which held hearings this month into UC's pay practices after The Chronicle published a series of stories on the subject. "There is no accountability."
It really is as bad as it seems.
"...UC Davis agreed to give her $50,000 plus a job that pays $205,000 a year with no job description or regular duties."
Hmmm, I wonder if they can find 10000 more like it? I'll settle for the cash.
