Concerns continue to exist and grow regarding expenditures of Desert Community College District money. To that end, the Desert Community College District Board of Trustees will consider on Friday, Dec. 16 whether to conduct comprehensive forensic audits.

Concerns center on the cost of developing campuses and facilities in Cathedral City, Coachella, Mecca/Thermal, Palm Desert and Palm Springs.

A forensic audit is an examination of an entity’s financial records to derive evidence which can be used in a court of law or legal proceeding.

The proposed resolution also states that concerns have been expressed by constituents that have
requested public records that have to date not been provided and the city of Palm Springs has sued the District for planning documents, which has cast a shadow of secrecy on the District.
