UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County will pay for an audit of the county’s Department of Housing and Community Development following long-standing concerns about the department’s operations.

The county’s Office of Audits and Investigations recommended an independent audit in May, and it is being initiated by county officials separately from a wide-ranging public corruption investigation in the county.

The probe by federal prosecutors resulted in the arrest of former County Executive Jack Johnson last month on charges of evidence tampering.

The audit will cost $64,800 and be conducted by Virginia Tech University. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of May.
