With an increased public scrutiny toward the findings made in the Freeh Report, Penn State released the letter of engagement sent to Louis Freeh by the Board of Trustees earlier today to increase transparency with the transaction.
The letter, dated Nov. 18, 2011, outlines the terms of Freeh’s independent investigation and the scope of his engagement and purpose.
Penn State officials and the Board of Trustees have maintained the purpose of the Freeh report was simply for the recommendations made to improve university policy. However, the letter states, “The report will contain FSS’s findings concerning: i) failures that occurred in the reporting process; ii) the cause for those failures; iii) who had knowledge of the allegations of sexual abuse; and iv) how those allegations were handled by the Trustees, PSU administrators, coaches and other staff.”
The letter also describes payment terms and other contractual items. You can read it in full below.
