Report: University audit triggers IRB audit
The University of Alabama (UA) audit triggered by a degree audit triggered an audit assessment on the university.
The university announced on Tuesday that the IRB issued a Notice of Imminent Violation, which would force the university to make changes and conduct an audit.
If the university doesn’t act within two weeks, the IRBs decision would force it to close the university’s campuses and begin an audit of the business.
There were no details on the cause of the audit and no indication the audit would affect students or faculty.
“This is a critical moment in our mission to deliver quality education and enhance the experience of our students,” UA President Doug White said in a statement.
However, the university is not yet obligated to do the audit.
White also added that he was “extremely disappointed” in the way the university handled the audit issue.
This is not the first time an IRB has triggered an IRV audit on a university.
The College of Southern California (CSU) was the target of an audit last month for alleged financial mismanagement in the use of the school’s $1.5 billion endowment.
According to a report in the LA Times, the audit prompted a series of actions by the university, including suspending the classes of about 1,100 faculty members, as well as requiring the closure of several academic departments.
Last month, the U.S. Department of Education sent letters to CSU and its board of trustees, asking them to submit their response to the audit, which was triggered by an audit that found the school did not adequately monitor its finances.
In addition, a number of professors resigned from the school.
A spokesman for the university said that the audit was the result of a “miscommunication” between the university and its trustees.

The audit prompted the UAs IRB to issue a Notice Of Imminent Failure.
At least two of the university�s academic departments have already filed a complaint with the IRBCs office, according to The Associated Press.
Under the IRBB, the universities auditor must issue a written report on the investigation and the findings of the report by a person or persons not designated by the IRIB to do so.
The report must be received by the UAS Board of Trustees within five business days of the filing, the office of University Chancellor Dan Wesson said in an email.
On Monday, the Associated Press reported that the university was still considering an IRBE audit of its endowment, which has a $2.2 billion valuation, and the UTSE, a $1 billion valuation.
The UTSES audit will require a significant financial adjustment.
The university has said it will also require an audit and other actions as part of the plan to address the situation.
ULRB officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
