SUNY Administration: Selected Financial Management Practices (Follow-Up Report)

The central administrative operations of SUNY are overseen by SUNY Administration, which employs more than 600 staff and is located in Albany.

When we followed up on these matters with SUNY officials, we found that they had made significant progress in implementing the recommendations contained in our audit report.
