Following a previously fumbled attempt to find a replacement for now-retired Boise State University President Dr. Bob Kustra, the Idaho State Board of Education announced today that it had selected a new firm—Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, which has main offices in California and Pennsylvania—to conduct a new search.

It's estimated that the State Board and Boise State paid nearly $130,000 for the previous search by Washington, D.C.-based AGB Search, which ended with the Idaho State Board deciding this past May not to offer the job to any of AGB's recommended finalists. Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates is expected to be paid $78,400 by Boise State for the new search, according to a statement from the State Board issued this morning. Storbeck/Pimentel was selected from a list of six search firms that submitted proposals. State Board President Dr. Linda Clark and other Board members will form a screening committee to vet candidates. Clark will serve as committee chair.

Meanwhile, Dr. Martin Schimpf is acting as Boise State interim president. Schimpf took over July 1, and his yearly salary while serving as interim president is $390,860.

“We have a solid interim president in place at Boise State, and with the academic year just beginning, this is the optimal time to start the search for Boise State’s next president,” said Clark in a prepared statement. “We will get started right away putting together our screening committee, which will include student, faculty and staff representatives among others. We will seek input from the Boise State campus community and we will keep them informed throughout the process.”
