SOEEA Audit History

Audits conducted by the Auditor General (a constitutional officer of the State of Illinois charged with reviewing the obligation, expenditure, receipt and use of public funds) has determined that "The University did not require all employees to submit time sheets as required by the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (ACT)." This determination has been made repeatedly starting the Fiscal Year 2004 - 2005. The Auditor General has indicated that "By not requiring appropriate items sheets from its employees, the University is not in compliance with the Act." Furthermore, the Auditor General recommended that "the University amend its policies to require all employees to submit time sheets in compliance with this Act".

The complete details related to each Fiscal Year's audit finding can be found in the following:
