Universal Hiring Program Grant for the
City University of New York

June 1998
Office of the Inspector General


The Office of the Inspector General, Audit Division, is in the process of auditing a grant awarded December 1, 1995 under the Universal Hiring Program (UHP) by the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) to the City University of New York (CUNY). The purpose of CUNY's grant was to provide $13 million to hire 175 additional sworn law enforcement officers. Because CUNY could not provide us with critical records and other records were materially inaccurate, we discontinued our audit. If this documentation is not made available to us within 30 days, we will question all funds received by CUNY and recommend that future funds be withheld until CUNY is in compliance with grant conditions.

The University was unable to provide us with the following information:

Consequently, we were not able to determine whether the University complied with grant conditions.
