Investigation Finds UT Athletics Staff Accepted Trips and Entertainment from Vendors
TN Comptroller's Office/Peg Broadcasting News Friday January 26, 2018

An investigation by the Tennessee Comptroller's Office has found that UT Athletics staff accepted trips and entertainment from vendors in violation of university policy. The investigation began after the University of Tennessee Department of Audit and Compliance notified the Comptroller's Office of possible discrepancies. Investigators determined that in 2016 the Director of Sports Surface Management violated university policy when he accepted at least two paid trips and related entertainment from a department vendor which had previously been awarded an equipment lease worth over $760,000. In 2014, two current UT athletics department employees also violated university policy when they attended the Masters Golf Tournament as guests of a potential vendor. Investigators also determined the athletics department had placed restrictive mandatory requirements on its request for quotation (RFQ) to purchase or lease 30 pieces of sports surface and golf facility maintenance equipment. These restrictive requirements may have inhibited bidding competition. "The University of Tennessee may wish to consider annual or periodic employee training related to its gift acceptance policy," said Comptroller Justin P. Wilson. "Officials should not engage in actions which might result in, or create the appearance of, private gain or preferential treatment."
