RICHMOND  (AP) -- State lawmakers are calling for more financial accountability at Norfolk State University.

The school hasn't been able to complete a financial audit for two years.

State auditor of public accounts Martha S. Mavredes briefed a legislative committee on deficiencies in the university's financial operations on Monday. Mavredes told the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission that Norfolk State doesn't have adequate administrative staff or documentation to complete the audits.

Committee members plan to increase scrutiny of the university.

Norfolk State spokeswoman Cheryl Bates-Lee tells The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/16aliQZ ) that the university is working with the state to complete the audits. She says the work is expected to be finished by the end of June or early July.
