    Bill Summary

    Present law authorizes the state university and community college system and the board of trustees of the University of Tennessee to take such steps, to enter into agreements and to do whatever they deem necessary for the establishment of foundations for the state colleges and universities under their control.

    This bill expressly authorizes the University of Tennessee board of trustees to designate one or more foundations established to support the university to receive and hold private gifts for support of the university unless the donor has specifically directed in writing that a gift be received and held by the university.

    Additionally, this bill expressly authorizes the University of Tennessee to:
    (1) Enter into a fee-for-services agreement with one or more foundations established to support the university under which the foundation will provide development and alumni services for the university. The agreement would be subject to the prior approval of the University of Tennessee board of trustees and to all prior approvals required by present law;
    (2) Enter into an agreement to lease university employees to one or more foundations established to support the university to carry out the mission of the foundation, including providing development and alumni services for the university. Employees so leased would remain eligible for participation in all university benefit programs for which they are otherwise eligible. The agreement would be subject to the prior approval of the University of Tennessee board of trustees and to the prior approval of the attorney general as to form and legality; and
    (3) Enter into a fee-for-services agreement to provide services, including human resources services, information technology services, and accounting and financial services, to one or more foundations established to support the university.
