Auditor General's Findings
The Auditor General’s Department Annual Report for the 2019/ 2020 Financial Year reported that:
3.2.106. The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) did not have an appropriate reporting mechanism in place that will ensure Correctional Centres to timely notify head office of the lodgements made to its Deposit Account. Consequently, as at October 2020, DCS had unidentified lodgements totalling $2.1 million that the Department was unable to classify and properly bring to account. We found that a lack of coordination between DCS’s head office and its Correctional Centres along with the absence of intercompany reconciliation were the main reasons for the DCS’ inability to identify the source of funds.
