Corruption and Conflicts of Interest

SITUATION: 
The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is the second largest school district in the country with an annual budget in excess of $11 billion.  Mired with problems and a price tag estimated over $200 million, the LAUSD hired FSS to determine the sources and uses of funds for the Belmont Learning Center project.

The construction of the Belmont Learning Center on an old abandoned oil field raised questions about the site selection process.  These questions turned to public outrage when construction was halted on the project when it was 60 percent complete, due to the risks associated with methane gas that was discovered on the project site.
