While the audit did not identify employees or any specific departments, FAMU President Larry Robinson said corrective actions pertaining to the Athletics Department include monthly reconciliation of P-card purchases, open purchase orders and vendor invoices. The university has reduced the number of athletic department employees assigned cards. Robinson said the Office of Procurement Services in February will begin monthly training campus-wide for purchase cards users and their supervisors. He also said the Procurement and Human Resource offices are working collaboratively to make sure cards are terminated in a timely manner once an employee has left the university. In its April 2017 report, the Auditor General’s Office found that from April 2015 through June 2016, FAMU issued purchasing cards to 127 employees who made purchases totaling about $3.2 million. Elmira Mangum was president at the time. As expected, auditors said FAMU trustees must continue to closely monitor the financial status of the athletics department and its 12-year repayment plan to erase the deficit approved by the Board of Governors.  – Byron Dobson, tallahassee – Read More
