SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake Community College will return $158,521 to a program that provides employee training for Utah businesses.
The community college had misapplied money meant for the Custom Fit program, said Donald L. Porter, vice president of business services at the college.
"Most of the problems can be traced to inadequate or incomplete communications and significant changes in the roster of personnel who have been dealing with the Custom Fit program over the past couple of years," Porter said.
The money went to different programs at a suburban campus of the college, and some potential Custom Fit clients were turned away supposedly because there wasn't enough money for them.
The community college will repay approximately $50,000 over the next three years.
Porter said that the Utah Office of Education had administered the Custom Fit program until two years ago and that the transition to UCAT had created some difficulty for the community college.
Custom Fit trains employees for new or changing businesses.
