Holland called the losses problematic because it increases the risk of exposing confidential information. Corrections and Juvenile Justice officials told auditors they would investigate the missing computers.

In June the auditor found more than 250 computers unaccounted for at Southern Illinois University.

State officials estimate the value of the missing SIU and prison computers at $639,000.
