Mr. Hoover, there is no record in the university's payroll system of any compensation paid to Mr. Zacharia, so your request is respectfully denied.

Mr. Primm:

Thank you for your response. According to the following public records, Mr. Zacharia held at least three positions during this timeframe.

1. Vice President of Science and Technology per https://news.utk.edu/2007/11/05/zacharia-named-ut-vice-president-for-science-and-technology/

2. a member of the faculty per https://news.utk.edu/2007/11/05/zacharia-named-ut-vice-president-for-science-and-technology/

3. Principal Investigator of NSF award 0711134 per https://nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=0711134

It is very unusual for such important, high-profile positions to be uncompensated.

Please use this detailed information to examine my original request.

Thank you.

From: University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Mr. Hoover, the request was denied on April 13, 2022, on the basis that there were no responsive records.
