Bismarck   (CSi)  State Auditor Joshua Gallion Monday released an audit of Valley City State University that found the University did not provide documentation showing competitive bidding for two transactions that happened in the July 2017-June 2019 timeframe.

Auditor Gallion says, “Citizens should have confidence that purchases are made in a way that gets the best return on their investment. Moving forward, VCSU should take the necessary steps to comply with the rules.”

The audit report states this was also a recommendation from the previous audit done in 2017.

This audit is a result of the State Auditor’s Office statutory responsibility to audit or review each state agency once every two years. The complete audit report can be found on our website,
