Freeh Report Update: 116 of 118 Recommendations Implemented or Ongoing
Despite most of the business at today’s Board of Trustees Legal and Compliance committee meeting being conducted in executive session, the fifteen minute public meeting provided a few tidbits of what’s to come at tomorrow’s meeting. Notably, Penn State Vice President for Finance and Business David Gray provided the traditional bi-monthly update on the Freeh report recommendations implementation.
Gray said that of the 118 recommendations, 116 have been completed or are ongoing. The two remaining recommendations are simply status reports from Academic Integrity Monitor George Mitchell which will be completed next month and then again in August 2014.
There were originally 119 recommendations, however, one was dropped with the approval of the NCAA. The recommendation in question would have created a new Vice President position for human relations but the university decided that it wasn’t feasible.
Other items discussed at the meeting include updated reports from the director of university compliance and the athletic integrity officer. The Nittany Lion Inn liquor license was also briefly discussed.
