TOPEKA — Former Kansas State University President Jon Wefald gave too much power to deputies who operated with too little oversight, according to a final review of financial irregularities identified in a recent audit.
"It was clear there was an awful lot of power invested in too few people," current President Kirk Schulz told the Kansas Board of Regents today.
Schulz briefed the Regents on what actions have been taken in response to the June audit, which revealed undisclosed payments, conflicts of interest and accounting irregularities and potential tax problems at KSU and its Athletics Department.
A task force including faculty, alumni, students and university officials reviewed the audit and submitted four conclusions and recommendations.
