Briefing to Address Oversight, Accountability, and Transparency at the UH System Continues
Honolulu – The Senate Special Committee on Accountability will continue its informational briefing on the oversight, accountability, and transparency of the operational and financial management of the University of Hawaii System, including but not limited to the University of Hawaii’s Athletics Department on Tuesday, October 2 at 1 p.m. in the State Capitol’s room 211.
University of Hawaii Chancellor Tom Apple, Stan Sheriff Center Manager Rich Sheriff, University of Hawaii Board of Regents Vice Chairs James Lee and Carl Carlson and University of Hawaii Board of Regent Coralie Matayoshi were invited to testify before the committee. An invitation to attend the briefing was also sent to Bob Peyton.
“At this briefing, we will continue where we left off on September 24 and we expect to gain some insight into the University’s budget policy. We hope to learn many aspects about the budget, including how the outsourcing of services, such as legal counsel and public relations, and contract buyouts impact UH’s overall budget,” said Senator Donna Mercado Kim, chair of the Senate Special Committee on Accountability.
