Treasurer to seek audit of Nebraska finance authority

Treasurer to seek audit of Nebraska finance authority
Nebraska Treasurer Don Stenberg

Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg says he plans to seek an audit of a state finance organization that is refusing to cooperate with his office’s request for information.

Stenberg told a legislative committee Wednesday that the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority is denying him information that should be posted on the state’s spending transparency website.
Stenberg says the authority has engaged in a “campaign of obstruction” and made repeated excuses to keep him from getting access to its financial data. His comments were made during a hearing on a bill that would allow agencies such as the finance authority to provide a link to their contracts to the state spending
website, instead of raw data.

Stenberg says he wants auditors to review the authority’s finances and staff salaries.
