PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Officials say state auditors have begun their investigation into the financial management and human resources practices of Rhode Island College.
The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1mf8ORC ) the audit was initially requested by Jim Purcell, the state’s Commissioner of Postsecondary Education, following allegations of mismanagement at the Providence college.
Purcell has asked auditors to “review the current processes and procedures to make sure they were in line with state law and higher education board policy.”
State Bureau of Audits Chief Dorothy Pascale says the examination is expected to take three to four weeks depending on the amount of issues uncovered.
Purcell says the audit is more concerned with procedures and processes than financial issues.
RIC President Nancy Carriuolo announced last Thursday that she will resign after this year citing public criticism.
