How Texas A&M University is monitoring its contracts with private companies was discussed at length at this week’s board of regents meeting.
The Chief Auditor for the A&M System, Cathy Smock, reported the flagship campus was not ensuring textbook prices at Barnes & Noble were in compliance with contract terms.
Smock also reported A&M and other system schools did not have enough people monitoring multiple contracts with SSC Service Solutions, the private provider of food service, landscaping, and maintenance.
