A legislative audit is raising questions about inventory management at Marshall University's medical school.
The Charleston Gazette reports that the audit found that lax inventory management standards at Marshall's Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine raise the prospect that hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of assets could be hard to track. That includes more than $600,000 worth of computers purchased in the past three years.
The audit released Tuesday found that medical school staff failed to put inventory tracking tags on all equipment and failed to inventory computers with purchase prices of less than $5,000.
It recommended that the School of Medicine follow the state requirement to inventory all computers valued at $500 or more.
A dean pledged that the school would comply with the recommendations.
