Bump releases audits of 3 education collaboratives



Auditor Suzanne Bump today released her audit of the embattled Merrimack Special Education Collaborative (MSEC), along with audits of the Southeastern Massachusetts Education Collaborative (SMEC) and READS Collaborative. The audits found serious problems with the management and finances of the three collaboratives, ranging from poor accounting practices to violations of state law. The audits indicate the problems are not confined to just one collaborative, and may require changes in regulatory oversight.

Bump announced reform recommendations today in response to the findings. Click to read the press release and the proposed reform measures.
