State Auditor: May Institute Overcharged State


BOSTON (AP) — The state auditor says a nonprofit that contracts with Massachusetts to provide services to residents with autism and other developmental disabilities overcharged the state nearly $350,000 for staff salaries.

Auditor Suzanne Bump on Monday called on the Randolph-based May Institute to reimburse the state.

The audit found the May Institute’s president was paid in state funds for services that he should have paid for out of his own pocket. They included personal use of two vehicles and a home health aide for his wife.

The amount included more than $138,000 to the president, and more than $210,000 more than the maximum allowable amount in wages to 10 managers for the 2010 and 2011 fiscal years.

The May Institute said in a statement it would review the audit and repay all appropriate funds.
