12 INVESTIGATES: Richmond School audit delayed until June

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

An audit of the Richmond School System won't be ready until at least June, according to City Auditor Umesh Dalal.

The news comes after school board members tried to stop rumors this week that the auditor would be checking employee's personal information. 

Dalal will have access to Social Security numbers, which he says is normal for any audit. He says the numbers are destroyed and discarded after the audit is finished.

He will also have access to payroll information. He's taking a look at the school system's budget, what it's spending money on,  including employees.

Dalal will also see tax ID numbers, but that is only to check if an employee is also a vendor for the school system.

No personal bank account information will be available.

The school board asked for this audit three months ago and school board members have been really vocal in pointing out that the administration has dragged its feet getting Dalal the information he needs.

He says the school audit won't be done until June at the earliest.
