TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is looking to get some $3 million back from Florida State University.
The federal agency claims Florida State officials did not provide adequate oversight to ensure consistent compliance with federal regulations and left it to the discretion of its individual colleges, departments, and principal investigators to interpret the procedures correctly.
The university says it disagrees. The school is working to resolve the difference in hopes of whittling down the amount of repayment sought by the federal agency.
In addition to a $3 million repayment from Florida State, the agency recommended the university enhance its oversight of charges to federal awards to ensure compliance with federal regulations.
The agency now awaits further comment from the university before it issues a final report.
