UWF launches investigation into Complete Florida Plus program

The University of West Florida President Dr. Martha Saunders has launched an investigation into an allegation of potential mismanagement of funds and accounting issues related to the Complete Florida Plus program, a state-wide program administrated by the UWF Division of Research and Strategic Innovation.

Late last month, Dr. Pam Northrup has resigned as Vice President, Research and Strategic Innovation and CEO Academic Innovation.

In a letter to UWF faculty and staff, Dr. Saunders wrote, “Consistent with UWF’s standard practice with these types of allegations, UWF administration immediately launched an investigation that will examine and audit the management and accounting of this program.”

Dr. Saunders said the result of the audit will be released once it’s completed.
