It's been 20 years since Marshall University's Medical School has had a performance audit. Tuesday, the State found the school lax in inventory with certain items.
According to the State's Post Audit Division, school staff failed to put inventory tracking tags on equipment and also failed to inventory computers which cost less than five thousand dollars. The audit states this can be serious, since computers can be easy targets for thieves.
Nothing in the audit suggests anything was missing or whether there was fraudulent activity.
Stacie Sneed with the Post Audit Division says it's not uncommon for Universities to forget tracking or tagging items, but it's still serious. Med School leaders say it's a lesson learned.
