AMES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa State Auditor will not conduct a special audit of Iowa State University President Steven Leath’s potential misuse of school airplanes.

An aide to State Auditor Mary Mosiman said Tuesday that any findings or recommendations related to those issues will be issued next summer in Iowa State’s routine annual audit report.

Mosiman said after the airplanes scandal broke in October that her office “decided to review this situation as soon as we became aware of it.” But she’d declined to clarify the scope or timeline of the review.

Leath said Monday that the university hasn’t heard from Mosiman’s office and wasn’t anticipating any further audit. He apologized and reimbursed the university $19,000 for questionable flights after the release of a Board of Regents audit that left some questions unresolved.
