State Auditor Joshua Gallion today released an audit of the North Dakota School of Deaf that found they did not comply with state procurement rules by failing to obtain bids on three purchases and did not maintain documentation of purchases.
"The State Procurement Guidelines are in place so that taxpayers can be assured their dollars are being spent economically,” Auditor Gallion said. “Not following those guidelines could mean that the School did not get the best purchase price available.”
This audit is a result of the State Auditor’s Office statutory responsibility to audit or review each state agency once every two years. The complete audit report can be found on our website, http://bit.ly/NDSchoolDeaf19.
