State's Good Government Agency Calls for Reforms at Stem Cell Agency
Date:6/26/2009

The commission urged that the roles of the chairman and president be realigned "to eliminate overlapping authority and to enhance clarity and accountability." The president would manage all day-to-day operations.

The Commission said CIRM should improve efficiency and transparency for distributing grants and loans. It urged the stem cell agency to explore options for greater disclosure of the scientific peer review process. One suggestion was to poll CIRM's reviewers about their willingness to participate if their financial disclosure statements were made public.

The commission said that the Citizens' Financial Accountability Oversight Committee should conduct performance audits of CIRM and that members of the stem cell agency's board members should hold themselves more accountable by adopting removal provisions in the board's bylaws.

Finally, the Commission said the board should plan for CIRM's future through an open process.

"CIRM's staff has been working on a revised strategic plan since last fall," said Simpson. "It's urgent that it is completed and presented to the board. Frankly, I don't understand how CIRM presented the 2009-2010 budget without a revised strategic plan."
