Report Says OSBI Used State Time For Nonprofits

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

An audit of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation shows employees of the agency used state resources and time to raise money for two nonprofits associated with the agency -- then refused to release documents to the state auditor's office.

State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones released a special audit report Thursday that also says one of the nonprofits -- the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Employee Association-- spent nearly $10,000 to take 11 employees on a cruise.

The audit was requested by OSBI Director Stan Florence to examine the agency's role with both the association and the nonprofit Friends of the OSBI, Inc.

OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown -- who is president of Friends of the OSBI, Inc. -- said she hadn't read the audit and declined comment on it.
