Lt. Gov. Newsom raised questions about cost savings at Regents meeting of July 22, 2015

At the July 22, 2015 Regents meeting, there was a presentation on various cost saving efforts. All was going well from a PR point of view until Lieutenant Gov. Gavin Newsom - an ex officio regent - asked why cost savings related to various information technology programs - were not net of the large cost overrun related to the UCPath project fiasco.

After about ten minutes of back and forth with Newsom, UC officials were asked to come back with clarifying data.

We will eventually post the audio of the entire July 22 morning session. But it runs well over four hours and so the posting will come in due course. In the meantime, the exchange with Newsom can be heard at the link below:
