UConn Audit Uncovers 'Excessive Compensation'

A state audit has uncovered another case of a state administrator receiving high pay even after leaving the job.

Among the auditors findings in the 43-page audit was "excessive compensation" and the report says the head of the University of Connecticut Libraries received his $203,000 salary for a year after stepping down from his management position, even though he was functioning as a part-time consultant.

UConn contends the administrator was paid that rate for eight months and in the future people who step down from management positions should be compensated at a level consistent with the work they are performing.

These revelations come on the heels of news the Connecticut Lottery president will step down and receive well above her $206,000 annual salary as she serves as a senior adviser to the lottery board and her successor is chosen.

At the time that was announced, the quasi-public Lottery Corporation explained the outgoing president was there for a decade and helped deliver seven years of record returns.
