Vote threatened by super collider audit SSC misspent $216 million, report says THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON - Super col lider managers have allowed at least $216 million in unreasonable subcontractor expenses, the Ener gy Department's inspector gener al said in a draft report made pub lic just two days before a crucial House vote. An audit of $508 million in contracts from fiscal 1989-1992 found 40 percent — or $216 mil lion — of the spending represent ed unnecessary or excessive costs, the draft said. An additional $174 million in planned spending also didn't meet guidelines for justi fied expenditures. The draft, released Tuesday by the Project on Government Over sight, also took issue with $764,000 spent by the collider's overseers — including $122,000 for employee morale, $56,000 for tropical plants and $35,000 for a Christmas party. Edward J. Siskin, general man ager of the collider, denounced the findings and denied any sub contractor overruns. "There really is no validity to that issue," he said. Release of the internal report by the Project on Government Oversight, a non-partisan inves tigative group that works with government whistle-blowers, comes at a critical time for the gi ant atom smasher. When the House takes up de bate Thursday on the collider, now estimated at $10 billion or more to build, critics will mount their annual fight to kill it. With lawmakers anxious to prove their willingness to cut federal spend ing, the super collider is in peril. The DOE document, which comes on the heels of critical re ports by the General Accounting Office, could strengthen the hand of critics who have long contended that the super collider is being poorly managed and is over budget. "Unless costs are brought un der control, there will remain a risk that the SSC could substan tially exceed its cost estimate and lose public support," the inspec tor general said in the draft be ing circulated within DOE for comment. The report singled out one ma jor subcontractor, Westinghouse Corp., which charged taxpayers $66,000 for expenses such as country club dues, golf green fees, first-class airfare and alcoholic beverages. The charges were later disallowed during an internal re view. "That's something we ought to get a gold star for," said collider laboratory spokesman Russ Wylie. Asked about the IG's report White House budget directoi Leon Panetta said it bolsters the administration's decision to stretch out collider funding bi three years and further monitor spending. "I can't answer for the waste that took place in the last admin istration, but we do have to an swer for any waste that takes place in this administration," said Panetta, who earlier this year rec ommended killing the collider "And I can tell you one of my goals will be to very closely over see spending in that area." Siskin, who had not seen the report, said project managers have tightened spending controls He blamed the critical report ona DOE policy debate over fixed- price contracts versus reim bursable contracts. Reimbursable contracts have been the norm so far, with collid er managers granting a contract for one component of the wort and later coming back and ex panding the contract to include additional work. In the case of fixed-price contracts, all of the work and the cost of the contract is assigned up front. Tenure Continued from Page 1 Within three months after finding out they were not granted tenure, Stock and Hursey both found higher paying jobs. As of July 18, Stock will be an assistant professor at the Pacific Grad uate School of Psychology in Palo Alto, Calif. "The school that hired me did so because of my knowledge in gen der issues, and they said that my publication record was just fine," Stock said. "I am also being paid $14,000 more a year. "I believe the University is shooting itself in the foot for letting so many qualified people leave." A petition on Stock's behalf with more than 100 signatures and over 30 letters was signed by undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members. "I believe that the students need to be more public with their views," she said. "If they are against something, they should let it be known." Stock came to A&M in 1984 as a professor of psychology. She is founder and faculty advisor of the University chapter of the National Organization of Women (NOW). In 1992 she was named Feminist Ac tivist of the Year in Texas. An associate member of the International Academy of Sex Research, Stock was interviewed last semester on the ABC-TV program "20/20" for her pornography research. She also has been involved in commu nity programs such as Phoebe's Home and the Rape Crisis Center for the Brazos Valley. ^flSCOTT & WHITE ‘ CLINIC, COLLEGE STATION Announcing Weekend Clinic Hours for Urgent Care 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Scott & White Clinic, College Station, is now offering weekend Clinic hours for urgent care by appointment ] onlyl The Weekend Clinic is conducted from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Clinic Annex building located across the street (Glenhaven Dr.) from the main clinic.
