Wow. I hope that the BOE had access to many more non-public documents to support voting on these publicly disclosed ones. For instance, on the sale of Odyssey, everything seems to hinge on the details of Kevin Overton's recommendation. No other reason is given for approving the sale than that he said so. I hope that recommendation includes a thorough and well-supported analysis.

And those "corrective action plans" are wrong, just plain wrong. Corrective action begins from recognition that the policies and procedures as they stand lead to the failures as documented. The corrective action has to address the failures directly, not just promise "we'll follow proper policy in the future".

To 5:52AM ~~ You make some excellent points! I seriously doubt they made use of anything else they may have had access to unless ordered to by their own lawyers, which is highly unlikely. These folks aren't known for their smarts.

Your observation about the corrective action plans seems right on target! But alas, this BOE can't even follow simple rules of courtesy (like starting a meeting on time) let alone follow their own policies/procedures. I bet if they were given a 20 question quiz on what their actual policies say they'd all fail.
