Staff: "Allow us to fire underperforming employees, regardless of how long they've been here."
UVA Human Resources::"Oh we can't do that"
Staff:"Then you don't REALLY want efficiency. Leave us alone."
Staff 2:"Get us out of the 18th century and caught up with our peer institutions by moving slow, wasteful paper processes to electronic"
Leadership:"We can't afford systems and their upgrades."
Staff 2:"Even when you factor how much labor cost is wasted chasing paper."
Leadership:"We don't count that."
Staff2:"Then you don't REALLY want efficiency. Leave us alone."

Here's an idea: How about NOT spending $45 a head for "an American Breakfast" for the Board of Visitors? What is that, anyway, eggs with gold dust?!

Or this: "One member, who lives in Connecticut, was reimbursed $358 for a plane ticket and $564 for car service to and from the airports." Would it kill you to take a cab?
