More FAMU Firings

By  | 

Eyewitness News has learned that Michael Brown, FAMU's suspended inspector general, has now been fired along with his assistant, Joan Hart.

In a statement issued from FAMU trustee chair Challis Lowe, Brown and Hart were advised they will no longer be employed with the university.

The two have been on administrative paid leave since mid June following complaints Brown made of university officials.

We've also learned one of the officials investigated was interim president Castell Bryant. The other two officials investigated by Brown were former Chief Financial Officer Gerald Dunn and Rufus Little, Vice President of Compliance and Audit.

University regulations provide that Brown and Hart will be paid for an additional 60 days. Marty Khan, Director of Internal Auditing with the University of North Florida, was requested to conduct the investigation of Brown's complaints.

Khan states Brown's investigation was "unacceptable and clearly outside the standards of the audit profession."
