Work Group 2
Group 2, Transparency about All Diocesan Operations
Transparency about All Diocesan Operations.
- How does the Diocese compare with other dioceses in terms of financial transparency? Are there things that we can do in Buffalo to improve financial transparency?
- How transparent are the entities under which the Diocese operates? Are the boards governing those operations acting as truly fiduciary bodies?
- As all resources expended for sex abuse cases come from the laity, who have contributed cash and property to the church, shouldn’t we know what has been spent to date on settlement of these sex abuse claims?
- Does the compensation fund established by the Diocese need to be re-thought to be more comprehensive? Should the deadline for filing be reopened?
- Are there best practices in place in other dioceses in the United States that should be brought to Buffalo?
