No separation package for Meotti

Michael P. Meotti, the outgoing executive vice president of the state’s college system, will be leaving the system without any perks.

“There’s no separation package,” said Colleen Flanagan Johnson, the system’s chief of staff.

Meotti — whose looming departure follows a trio of controversies — had no contract with the Board of Regents following his appointment last December. When Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s office named Meotti as the interim vice president of the newly merged system in June 2011, he also did not have a contract.

Meotti did have a contract as the state’s commissioner for higher education, which expires in 2013, but Flanagan Johnson said he “is not invoking his contract in reference to separation from state service.”
