DES MOINES (AP) — A consulting firm hired to review academic programs at Iowa’s three public universities has been fired.
The Des Moines Register reports an Iowa Board of Regents member confirmed Wednesday that KH Consulting, a Los Angeles-based company, had been fired by Deloitte Consulting.
KH Consulting was working on a three-phase academic review. It recently collected massive amounts of data on programs at Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa.
Deloitte is overseeing a wide-ranging study on the three schools as part of a major cost-cutting review. The newspaper reports the New York-based company halted collaboration with KH Consulting because of a time conflict. The company did not elaborate. They are now searching for another firm to finish the work.
