Choi addresses proposed University of Missouri budget cuts - KATIE KULL, Associated Press

University of Missouri System president Mun Choi said Friday the system has outlined a number of ways it would deal with possible budget cuts that would stem from a proposed 10 percent cut in state funding next fiscal year. The first action came Friday when he eliminated a contentious performance bonus program for top administrators. It came under scrutiny last week after an audit revealed the system doled out about $1.2 million in performance incentives to 18 top university administrators over the last three years. The bonuses were given without direct approval from the board of curators and without clear performance criteria, the audit said. Lawmakers criticized the program, saying the universities should be tightening their belts in anticipation of less state funding.
