U Of L Completes Internal Audit of CEHD

by Gabe Bullard on March 4, 2009

The College of Education at the University of Louisville is preparing a new training program in response to an internal audit.

The audit was conducted in the wake of former Education Dean Robert Felner’s alleged mishandling of funds.

The investigation looked at the policies and practices of the education department and found they were adequate when compared with those at other universities. Director of Audit Services Dave Barker says the problems at U of L involved adherence to those policies.

“We need some additional training,” he says. “We also need to enhance some controls from the perspective that the university has good policy and procedure, but in some cases we’re not always following those policies and procedures, there.”

The college will introduce a new training program to make sure policies are being followed. Barker says a start date for the program hasn’t been set.

Well, yes indeed, let’s see if we can actually follow all those wonderful policies and procedures we have had in place for so long. That would be a novel approach at UL, their own audit declares. It is much like the bank robber who knows about the anti-bank robbing laws so long in place but just doesn’t “adhere” to them.

Adhere to the policies! That would display a pinch of the needed integrity. And maybe then faculty, staff and students could shed some of their fear about their workplace. The important thing will be who participates in the training–like maybe the Executive Suite folks, all of whom dropped the ball so many times (no, really they didn’t drop the ball–they never picked it up). And when the Execs. routinely don’t adhere to the policies they write, just what do we expect of others?

Is this the best you can do? If so, never mind, and please refund my pledge money.
