School officials want purchasing controls
By DAVE McMILLION
Washington County school officials discussed Wednesday how to set up a system of checks and balances for the Washington County Board of Education's purchasing policies.
School officials discussed having an independent auditor review the school district's purchasing system, but acting Superintendent Herman G. Bartlett Jr. suggested school officials hold off on the idea until he has had a chance to review the situation.
Bartlett suggested that a team of people be set up within the central office to periodically review compliance with purchasing policies.
