i saw a lot of corruption with staff being made directors and gaining huge salaries. Eventually they got caught and that whole team were disbanded. False mileage claims were a good earner, so, they bought 6 cars for those claimants. Result was,it had the appearance they only did one third of the previous years mileage.I would love to write up a history of what i saw but i would get knobbled along the way.
The new 75,000,000 pound building was finished and they had mis-used the money to pay for it. Government then cleared the debt.
Uni is a business to make a profit these days. A long way on from when Devon County Council held the purse strings.
