A new audit shows payroll problems and likely fraud have hit Alamogordo schools.

This is according to the Alamogordo Daily News.

An audit reveals an employee from the main district negotiated a telecommunications contract without a purchase order or going out to bid.

It also found the district prepaid more than $100,000 worth of salaries back in July without benefits.

The district did not recover the money when employees left.
