A 50-year-old MN nonprofit, funded by school districts to boost technology, "misspent millions of dollars," its board-mandated audit discovered. 

"A technology organization funded by Minnesota school districts misspent millions of dollars on a headquarters renovation, mismanaged a State Fair parking lot and had such lax financial controls it paid for nonexistent services, according to a private audit obtained by the Star Tribune. TIES, a St. Paul-based nonprofit founded in 1967, has an annual operating budget of about $30 million, nearly all of which comes from member school districts, who tap the organization for training and technology such as the popular FeePay online system for lunch and activity payments." -- Jennifer Bjorhus, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune
