Ohio State trustees to receive compliance briefing
Wednesday, September 7, 2011
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Officials from two firms that were recommended to review Ohio State compliance programs in the wake of the football team's memorabilia scandal plan to brief university trustees Thursday.
The months-long analysis will look at compliance across the university, with an emphasis on athletics, research, student financial aid and the medical center including Ohio State hospitals.
The university's chief financial officer has recommended that Protiviti Inc. of Menlo Park, Calif., a global business and risk consulting firm, undertake the review.
A second company, New York-based law firm Dewey and LeBoeuf, will assist with legal issues arising from the work.
The review comes as Ohio State tries to recover from an NCAA rules scandal that cost former coach Jim Tressel his job and led to the departure of quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
