Audit Finds Problems in School District Records

July 29, 1998

The Bassett Unified School District awarded contracts without bids, failed to keep records and lost supplies during the past two years because financial controls were ignored, according to an auditor's report.

The auditing firm Vavrinek, Trine & Day Co. reported that more than $19,000 worth of supplies were removed from a warehouse without any record of their removal. Several employees were granted special access to the warehouse, school officials said.

School Board President Brenda Johnson, who has led the board since November and asked for the report, said the findings will be forwarded to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office and state school officials for review.

The report will be discussed by the school board Thursday, school officials said.
