Responses to Governor's Office Questions Related to University System Research

February 27, 2009

Dear Ms. Lombardi:

Below are the responses to the university system research questions you submitted to me on February 10, 2009 (copy of letter). Most of the questions are answered in full and, as you will see, the responses demonstrate a concerted and diligent effort to answer all of your questions. A few of the questions require very detailed responses that cannot be completed prior to the March Board of Regents meeting.   My staff and I plan to further review any unanswered questions with the Board to obtain their guidance on the process we should use.

Sincerely,
