An audit of the University of Louisiana at Monroe shows the university is missing funds totaling $58,554 from its Department of Recreational Services as a result of cash control deficiencies.
The audit, released Thursday by the Louisiana legislative auditor, noted that additional funds could be missing because some pre-numbered receipts had been removed from the receipt books and about three months of cash register tapes were not located.
A federal audit says the Jefferson Parish Housing Authority illegally paid board members nearly $107,000 and created a conflict of interest and violated federal rules by paying $91,000 to a state legislator's repair company.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development audit says the agency should repay the money and must either document or repay another $450,000. That includes $240,000 paid to four Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies for security services, $95,000 to its attorney and $81,000 to its accounting firm.
