The OIG investigated allegations that a Bureau of Indian Education employee improperly used school funds to update classrooms. We also investigated allegations that the employee personally benefitted from the renovation projects by improperly influencing the award of a Federal contract to their spouse to perform the interior design work for the projects. We did not substantiate the allegations that the employee used their position in an improper manner or that the employee or the employee’s spouse personally benefitted from any of the classroom renovation work that was completed. We confirmed that the school did not award any Federal contracts for the renovation projects. We also found no evidence the renovation projects violated school policies or Federal regulations.
