by Associated Press

CHICAGO — An audit of Chicago State University by Illinois’ auditor general has found that the embattled school improperly reported nearly $52 million in federal awards.

The report by the state’s Auditor General Frank Mautino says the university didn’t properly prepare expenditure reports, as required by federal law, for federal awards of more than $51.7 million for two loan programs from the Department of Education.

The report says two awards from the Department of Health and Human Services related to a program for providing training and education to eligible individuals for health-care related professions were also improperly classified.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the university officials responded, saying they agree but that the school had properly reported the load amounts within the “footnotes” of their report.
