BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A new state audit finds Bismarck State College failed to maintain required documentation for granting tenure from July 2017 to June 2018.
State Auditor Joshua Gallion said Wednesday that failing to maintain the documentation to justify granting tenure and the additional benefits that go with it causes second guessing of those decisions.
The audit found the college did not document the letter of application requesting tenure, letters of recommendation from supervisors and peers and career qualifications.
The audit also found that the college was not following travel meal reimbursement policies and failed to follow proper procurement procedures.
The State Auditor’s Office is required to audit or review each state agency once every two years.
