A new independent study shows that of the 100 top Ivy League Universities checked, NOT ONE of them was disclosing the money they received from Government funding.
These schools think they are places of prestigious achievement and beyond the accountability of normal folks, but they are getting YOUR money, and not even acknowledging it as they are required to do by law.
So either they are purposely breaking the law, or they are incompetent at dealing with basic administration…Either one looks bad for them, and we should be questioning why they have “Ivy League Status” at all.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“Our analysis found that none of the 100 Ivy League press releases we examined complied with the funding disclosure requirements of the Stevens Amendment,” the study said.
The Stevens Amendment is the 1989 statute that requires grant recipients “when issuing statements, press releases, requests for proposals, bid solicitations and other documents describing projects or programs funded in whole or in part with Federal money …” to include:
- “The percentage of the total costs of the program or project which will be financed with federal money.”
- “The dollar amount of federal funds for the project or program.”
- The “percentage and dollar amount of the total costs of the project or program that will be financed by non-governmental sources.”
