Audit shows Southeastern missing computer equipment
BATON ROUGE - Southeastern Louisiana University is missing more than $50,000 in computer equipment according to a state audit.
The audit says the university either misplaced or lost the equipment it loaned to high schools as part of a program to encourage disadvantaged student to attend college.
A report from the Legislative Auditor also questioned how Southeastern handled the federal TRIO Talent Search initiative.
Students were admitted to the program without proper paperwork and student workers were paid for times when they were supposed to be in class.
SLU's interim vice president for administration and finance, Sam Domiano, agreed with the report and said steps have been taken to clean up the program.
