Audit Finds School Computers Stuck in Va. Warehouse

October 27, 2010

Richmond's auditor says about 40 percent of the computers found in a warehouse seven months ago still haven't been installed in the city's public schools.

Auditor Umesh V. Dalal wrote to Superintendent Yvonne W. Brandon last week that the computers now have limited value given their age.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch says Brandon is disappointed and promised to review the problem. Brandon says she is committed to ensuring that technology resources get into the hands of students as soon as possible.

Audit investigators discovered 500 computers in the warehouse in March and that some had been there for years. Dalal says 211 of the computers remained in the warehouse on Oct. 8.
