Wake School Board Considers Outside Audit

Posted July 12, 2005

— Wake County schools may soon have outside eyes looking over its books.

School board members are expected to discuss hiring an outside firm to review school system finances at a meeting on Tuesday.

A fraud investigation at the Transportation Department sparked the decision. The school board's attorney said former employees worked with former managers at a parts company to siphon millions of dollars over several years.

School board members have already agreed on the outside audit, but have yet to vote on it.
