The review will look at compliance across the university, including academics, medical operations, research and athletics.

Geoff Chatas, OSU chief financial officer, is recommending the selection of business consulting firm Protiviti Inc. of Menlo Park, Calif. Chatas is also recommending that New York-based law firm Dewey and LeBoeuf assist with the review.

Trustees are likely to approve the hiring next week.

The review comes as Ohio State tries to recover from a rules scandal that cost former coach Jim Tressel his job and led to the departure of quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
