The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine may have paid a faculty member more than $400,000 even though the researcher didn’t work for the school for more than three years, according to a report issued by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s office.

The auditor also highlighted possible conflicts of interest at the University Laboratory School and compliance issues at the AgCenter and Pennington Biomedical Research Center.

The Veterinary Medicine faculty member admitted not working for LSU in 2017 and 2018, and an internal audit found the person didn’t work for part of 2015 and all of 2016, according to the school’s dean. Disciplinary action has been initiated against the researcher and their supervisor has been replaced with an interim chairperson.

A review is under way to determine if there are other research-only positions and to examine the duties and oversight of those roles, LSU says.

An internal audit by LSU alleges two University Laboratory School administrators started a private company that would have accepted student payments for an after-school program, the Legislative Auditor’s report shows. The two principals started the company after being denied pay increases for their after-hours duties, the auditor’s office says.
