CalSTRS' corporate governance committee today voted to send a letter to CACI International Inc., Arlington, Va., questioning the company's alleged role in the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal. The $114 billion California State Teachers Retirement System, Sacramento, would like to meet with J.P. London, CACI chairman and CEO, as well as members of the audit and executive committee to discuss the matter. CACI has denied the allegations.
Separately, in September the committee will review the system's proxy voting policy concerning companies that sell technologies or services designed to torture people or fail to meet the Geneva Convention standards. The review was proposed by state Controller Steve Westly.
