Consumer Watchdog: No Way to Run $6 Billion Enterprise

John M. Simpson, stem cell project director for Consumer Watchdog, commented on his blog Tuesday on the financial matters before the CIRM Governance Subcommittee today.

He said,
"There is simply no excuse for the documents being unavailable the day before the meeting. They should have been there when the agenda was posted. Members of the subcommittee cannot make informed decisions when they receive documents at the last minute. Nor can interested stakeholders offer intelligent comment.

"This is simply not the way to run a $6 billion publicly funded program."
CIRM posted its report on contracts this morning. Still missing is the amendment to Remcho's big contract for legal services. The meeting begins at 3 p.m. today.
