Second, in a complaint filed with SAG-PPHP on August 23, 2011, and reported in the business section of the Los Angeles Times on September 16,th 2011, Mr. Simmons alleges that Nader Karimi, who was Chief Information Officer with SAG-PPHP, was involved in a 5 to 10 million dollar embezzlement of the plans' funds.
An article in the Los Angeles Times on October 17, 2011 reports that the courts approved an insurance payment of $2.5 million to the Plans to compensate for a kickback scheme orchestrated by Mr. Karimi. This insurance settlement implies that SOME millions of dollars were errantly spent. Did the 2.5 million dollar insurance settlement approved by the courts restore to the Plan half of 5 million dollars or one quarter of 10 million dollars? The LA Times reported that Mr. Karimi left his post in 2009 and reached a settlement with the Plans for "an undisclosed amount. Why are we, the owners of the plan, just hearing about this now? And by the way, does "settlement" mean that we paid him or that he paid us? Is SAG prosecuting Mr. Dow or Mr. Karimi?

"We looked at SAN solutions from Sun/Hitachi, EMC, IBM, and HP," explains SAG-PPHP's Executive Vice President and CIO Nader Karimi. According to Karimi, the EVA5000 was the best-fit, enterprise-class storage solution, which could also support and integrate seamlessly the SAG-PPHP heterogeneous IT environment of VMS, UNIX and the Microsoft Windows NT platforms. The virtually "capacity free" snapshot capability of the EVA5000 enables the SAG-PPHP implementation team to run tests on actual production data, which has helped streamline application implementation. "Instead of working with test data, we can use a snapshot of actual production data and get a much more accurate picture of how the application will perform," Karimi notes. The combined capabilities of the EVA5000 system's VersaStor-enabled virtual RAID storage and HP OpenView Storage Area Manager enable Karimi's team to manage storage resources across the organization remotely and with less effort. Instead of manually tracking and managing direct-attached storage on dozens of individual servers, Karimi and his staff are now able to manage storage resources centrally in the organization's SAN and elsewhere. With data center space at a premium, Karimi appreciates the space-saving design of HP blade servers. "As CIO, I believe that HP will be here for the long haul," Karimi says.
