Among the miss-cues, the report says the UConn Health Center isn’t doing enough to reduce costs, paying way too much for compensatory time as well as tuition reimbursement.

The Center is also faulted for not having a competitive enough bidding process, leading to possible higher than necessary costs.

Twelve recommendations for improving spending policies have been made.
