A state audit released Thursday found that California State University has been hiring managers and providing them raises at a rate that “significantly outpaced” other employees.

It also raised concerns about budget oversight at the largest public university system in the nation.

The audit, titled “California State University: Stronger Oversight is Needed for Hiring and Compensating Management Personnel and for Monitoring Campus Budgets,” specifically found that between fiscal years 2007-08 and 2015-16, the number of full-time equivalent “management personnel” — which includes administrators, supervisors and other professional staff — grew by 15%. Over the same period, the number of faculty rose by 7%, while non-faculty support staff rose 6%.
