A legislative watchdog group recommends more transparency from the Mississippi University for Women Foundation after looking into complaints about the organization's financial activities.
The Joint Legislative Committee on Performance Evaluation and Expenditure Review, or PEER, publicly released its report Thursday based on its investigation of allegations the foundation operated in secrecy, among other claims.
University foundations handle the solicitation and expenditures of private donations.
PEER said transparency is compromised at MUW by the absence of complete minutes from meetings and a strategic plan.
PEER also recommended the state College Board adopt a policy requiring all university foundations to be more transparent.
