Business Briefs: CCA questions Idaho audit

CCA questions Idaho audit

Corrections Corp. of America, the Nashville-based prison firm that operates Silverdale Workhouse in Chattanooga, is pushing to get a KPMG report declared inconclusive after the auditors found CCA understaffed an Idaho prison by more than 26,000 hours.

The audit backed up an earlier Associated Press investigation that found guards sometimes claimed to work as much as 48 hours straight in order to fulfill staffing requirements. CCA spokesman Steve Owen says the audit is rife with errors and overestimates the staffing shortfalls by more than a third.

Georgia college pairs with China

A university in south Georgia is preparing to launch a business administration partnership with a school in south China.

A group of faculty members from Guangzhou College of South China University of Technology are visiting Thomas University in Thomasville for two weeks to learn about the school’s business administration program.

In a statement, university officials say 13 Chinese educators arrived to begin a series of seminars on Sunday. The partnership the schools plan to launch in August will allow Chinese students to take a combination of courses from the two schools and receive a bachelor of business administration degree from Thomas University.
