BOISE -- On Friday, Boise State released the costs the university has incurred since February 2009 regarding its investigation of potential NCAA violations. 

BSU says it has paid $201,000 over the past two years for outside compliance expertise and counsel from The Compliance Group and Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC. 

The university says the outside compliance counsel has helped the BSU athletic department become better educated on setting up new policies, procedures, and practices. 

The costs for the compliance agency have been paid for with Boise State Athletic Department revenue and not taxpayer dollars, according to the university. 

The BSU athletic department has been proactive since the NCAA and school found some 81 violations including adding compliance staff, they've updated the athletics compliance manual, and the university has worked to improve compliance documentation. 

Boise State will hear from the NCAA on June 10th in a final ruling on whether or not the university will face any additional sanctions for its wrong doing regarding an investigation of five sports between 2005 and 2010.
