SFEFC power may rise after damning Moray report

December 7, 2001

The Scottish Further Education Funding Council has circulated a damning report on Moray College.

Allegations of misconduct against Moray's then principal, Robert Chalmers, were sent to the National Audit Office in 1998, over a year before the SFEFC and the audit committee were set up.

SFEFC chief executive John Sizer found Dr Chalmers guilty of accepting a backdated increase in mileage rates to compensate him for tax liability for a college car.
