State employee misused property, according to audit
RALEIGH — A state audit says a University of North Carolina School of the Arts employee misused state property when she brought home a school computer for her son.
State Auditor Beth Wood on Thursday released findings of an investigation that originated from a tip.
The report says the chief information officer acquired an Apple MacBook Pro for the Winston-Salem school in 2010 that cost more than $2,000, but she said the laptop had connectivity problems and acquired another computer. Auditors say she took home the first laptop, which appeared to work properly and her son used at Appalachian State University.
Interim Chancellor James Moeser (MEE-zuhr) says the school took disciplinary action against the unnamed employee but did not say how. He says other changes are being made to reduce property misuse.
