FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The director of facilities management at

North Dakota State University is resigning.

Bruce Frantz's resignation is effective May 17. The announcement

Thursday comes a day after the release of a state audit critical of

some campus projects including the new North Dakota State

University president's house.

NDSU vice president Bruce Bollinger says the resignation was a

"mutual agreement." He says the ongoing scrutiny of capital

projects at NDSU was a factor.

Frantz has been at NDSU for a decade. He will receive a

three-month severance package.

The state auditor's office report released Wednesday said

several building projects overseen by the state university system

weren't properly monitored. It also said some schools including

NDSU have not complied with capital project requirements in state

law and state Board of Higher Education policy.
