Mr. Miller distributed a 2001-02 Budget Analysis with comments as of June 30, 2002 (attached). He reported that investments from the UofL Foundation were $2.2 million below projected earnings which contributed to the revenue shortfall.

The Board of Directors accept the audit report for the University of Louisville Athletic Association, Inc. for the year ended June 30, 2002, as prepared by Deloitte & Touche.
The motion passed unanimously.
