CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia State University official says internal control issues uncovered by a legislative audit have been corrected.
According to the audit, the issues occurred between 2008 and 2011. They included problems with controls of cash receipts, inadequate inventory and a lack of oversight of the university's state-issued purchasing card.
Media outlets report that the audit was released Tuesday during an interim legislative committee meeting. Assistant vice president Lori Elliot told lawmakers that internal controls have been strengthened since the period covered by the audit.
According to the audit, 67 items purchased between 2001 and 2011 couldn't be located. The missing items included 40 computers.
The audit also says employees didn't properly document nearly $800,000 in purchases made with the purchasing card.
