SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's school districts and charter schools will be audited for compliance with new State Board of Education fiscal policies, the Office of the Utah State Auditor announced Monday.
Schools are required to implement new policies regarding the management and use of public funds by Sept. 15. Those policies include penalties for the unlawful use of gratuities, kickbacks and influence in procuring contracts; and prohibit using gifts, compensation, loans or position to secure privileges or exemptions.
The new policies also address the acceptance of gifts and donations; and the use of school property, facilities and equipment.
The new policies took effect last April. Schools have been notified that the auditor's office, in coordination with the Utah State Office of Education, intends to audit compliance within one year of the policies' effective date.
