HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Auditors are pushing the Connecticut State University System to consolidate more purchasing decisions, saying this is the third reminder they have issued to CSUS trustees.

A state audit released Wednesday says CSUS is not complying with a state law that says purchasing goods and services for the system’s four universities must be handled at the main Hartford office.

Instead, it says, too many decisions are still being made locally at the Central, Southern, Eastern and Western Connecticut state universities’ campuses. The report does not say how much auditors think might be saved with more consolidation.

CSUS officials say they have consolidated as many of those purchasing decisions as feasible, but that the universities will face inefficiencies and bottlenecks if the CSUS headquarters has to handle every small, low-cost local item.
