Rockwood School Audit Shows Millions Wasted On Construction
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The biggest school district in St. Louis County is being told to tighten its business procedures and open up transactions.
It points out the district failed to request bids for major changes to renovation work at Marquette High School.
Auditors found 36 change orders totaling $1.8 million, or one third of the original construction contracts.
That, the auditor said, shows poor planning. It violates a state law requiring bids for construction that may exceed $15,000.
Schweich also noted Rockwood failed to document the selection of its construction management firm for the 2010 bond issue.
