Feds call for FSU to pay back $3 million

Jul 25, 2012

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services wants Florida State University to pay back $3 million.

The federal agency says the university officials didn’t properly oversee the grant money to make sure that its use complied with federal regulations.

A preliminary report issued by the Department says FSU left the compliance issues up to individual colleges, departments and principal investigators.

But the university says it disagrees with that assessment and is working to resolve the differences.
