North Carolina Central University is seeking to collect almost $60,000 in improper payments given to an IT and facilities manager at the North Carolina Central University School of Law between 2005 and 2012.
According to a state audit released yesterday, Gregory Clinton received several bonuses for his oversight of a temporary move of the school and installation of smart classrooms on campus, according to a state audit released yesterday. From WRAL.com:
The dean gave Clinton a $7,500 bonus, and Clinton asked his successor for similar payments when the renovations were complete and the law school returned to campus, the audit states. The new dean told auditors that Clinton told him that the former dean had already agreed to provide the payments, so another $15,000 was approved.
In 2010, N.C. Central officials asked Clinton to oversee the installation of electronic classrooms across the university, and he was paid $19,165 in fiscal 2011 and $17,606 in fiscal 2012 for his work on the project, according to the audit.
