Outside Auditor Bids For Wake County Schools Due Tuesday

Posted September 13, 2005 11:29 a.m. EDT

— As a result of a Wake County Public School System's multimillion-dollar fraud investigation, the school board is hiring an outside auditor.

Bids are due by 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Fifteen companies and individuals, including former N.C. state auditor Ralph Campbell, showed up last month for a pre-bid conference.

The outside auditor will review the books for the past three years.

The auditor will also review accounting changes implemented after the fraud was detected.
