Audit: Equipment thefts, other problems at GSU
BATON ROUGE - A new state audit of Grambling State University shows equipment thefts totaling more than $130,000 and an unbalanced budget with more total expenses than revenues in each of the five years analyzed.
According to the audit released Monday by the legislative auditor's office, the thefts included plumbing units, air conditioners and water heaters taken from the football stadium, campus buildings and vacant housing facilities. That one maintenance worker was arrested, confessing to thefts totaling $80,000.
Auditors advised the university to consider limiting key access, installing electronic card readers and security cameras, and increasing police patrols to mitigate its risk of loss.
Management agreed with the findings and recommendations and outlined a plan of corrective action.
