Consultant: USF violated grant regulations

Published Aug. 25, 1994|Updated Oct. 7, 2005

A consultant hired by the University of South Florida to review the university's administration of grants has concluded that some federal regulations were violated, but not deliberately. Dr. Donald R. Price said, however, that he expects the federal government will want to perform its own audit, and he recommended the university check for problems in other departments. Price found that some grant money was used to to pay for College of Medicine clerical workers who did not perform work related to the grant, a violation of federal regulations. Two USF researchers, Drs. Julie Djeu and Nicholas Hall, had complained about the practice.
