Auditor General's Findings
The audit of the accounting records and financial transactions of the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) for the 2017/2018 financial year identified weaknesses in the FLA’s controls over fixed assets and inventories. The Auditor General’s Department was unable to determine the accuracy and completeness of the Inventories balance totalling $2.5 million due to the absence of sufficient and appropriate evidence to support this amount in the accounts. Management was not able to provide a record of the detailed movement of Inventories as they reported that the relevant records could not be located.
