Governor Robert Bentley on Friday announced he is engaging a firm to conduct a forensic audit of Alabama State University.
This additional level of review has the support of ASU leadership. The review will be conducted by Forensic Strategic Solutions, Inc., of Birmingham.
"Alabama State is a world-class university that makes a positive difference in this community and in the lives of all the students it serves," Governor Bentley said. "Recently, many people have expressed concerns about contracts and other matters surrounding the university. The students, faculty, staff and alumni of ASU, and all the people of this state, deserve transparency. I support continuing to use Warren Averett, LLC, to conduct the institution's financial audit. However, I am engaging Forensic Strategic Solutions to conduct a separate analysis as well."
"This is in the best interest of Alabama State and all of us who love this university," Governor Bentley added. "We want to make sure nothing gets in the way of the success of ASU and its students. The ASU Board and leadership have publicly stated that they support full transparency in this process, and this additional review will help ensure we achieve that."
