A UC Davis professor returned almost $1,000 to the school this year after officials determined that three limousine trips he charged to the campus were inappropriate, according to the California state auditor’s latest report on improper activities committed by state workers.
The audit does not name the professor.
University of California investigators determined that the charges violated the college’s travel policy, which prohibits “expenses that are lavish or extravagant under the circumstances.”
When confronted, the professor acknowledged that he should have driven his own car for the trips he billed to the university.
