Auditor General's Findings
A review of the controls over fuel at the DCS’s Transportation Centre revealed that there was inadequate segregation of duties and the absence of regular independent checks of the fuel records at the Transportation Centre. The audit revealed that 6,743.88 litres of fuel with an estimated cost of $646,625.99 was not accounted for in the register for the periods beginning January 2015 and 2016.
Management reported that a major leak discovered on January 29, 2016 may have resulted in the undocumented loss. However, the Department has not conducted a full investigation to determine the total fuel lost or formally reported the loss to the Auditor General and Financial Secretary in accordance with the Financial Management Regulations.
