School Officials Who Embezzled $12.1 Million Tampered With Computer Software

Earlier this year, New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi blamed an independent auditing firm for violating nine mandatory accounting standards in failing to identify embezzlement by Roslyn school officials of $12.1 Million. At the time, he also alleged that security flaws in the school district's financial management software allowed books and records to be manipulated.

Recently, it has emerged that various security features were in place in the software but were overridden by the officials who embezzled the funds. Since the Roslyn debacle, school district officials involved with financial management have undergone additional training, and implemented new procedures to more easily uncover efforts to tamper with the software.
