Was the Academic Program company accepted due to an appropriate *RFP process? If so, when was the information pertaining to the RFP released and who sat on the RFP committee? The state apparently forbids the hiring of a company that one does not go through a proper RFP process. If we did not go through an RFP how valid is his and what are the repercussions?
*RFP – Request For
a recent explanation for a personnel decision, the Provost cited the principle
of “fairness” to the faculty member as one rational for that decision. Will the administration initiate a review of faculty salaries with the
purpose of addressing the terrible unfairness suffered by those colleagues
whose salaries are compressed and inverted?
This is a public records
request, going back ten years, for a year-by-year comparison of the amount of
the budget allocated to the different categories covering the maintenance and
improvement of the campus flora.
#1 - As a follow-up to
last month's question, could the administration please provide the faculty with
the following public information: The total salaries (including any salary
funds drawn from the Foundation) for 2011-12, 2012-2013, and 2013-2014 for the
following individuals: Tom Serwatka, Shari Shuman, Pam Chally, Barb Hetrick,
Mark Tumeo, Ajay Samant, Larry Daniel, Jay Coleman, Len Roberson, Jeff
Michelman, John Kantner, Mark Workman.
#2 - Two recent pieces
of information cause me to ask: Is UNF "over-administered"?
a. First, in Florida Trend's June 2013 issue, it was noted that the number of administrators at UNF increased by
15.7% from 2007 to 2011. (In 2007, there were 235 administrators and in 2011
there were 272 administrators). As a side note, in fall 2007 there were 16,406
students and in fall 2011 there were 16,368 students.
b. Second, we recently learned that Tom
Serwatka received a $60,000 raise. I think a thorough analysis of this issue is warranted.
Has the Budget Advisory Committee looked into this? Is there another group of non-administrators on
campus that should be examining this issue?
