The proposal seeks to remedy these problems on the two critical fronts of transparency and accountability (reporting). In doing so, it addresses the first three of the preventative measures I outlined last year in my meeting with the Provost. The fourth of these measures, related to the actions of my senior faculty administrator, also needs to be addressed, and urgently so, by our Chief Information Officer, who has to date refused to provide straight answers on this subject. However, that problem remains outside the scope of this proposal.
The footnotes included throughout the text are often important as explanatory material, in particular with regard to recent actions of our administration and the justification for the proposal.
