Purchasing and Inventory Practices (Follow-Up Review)

In our prior audit report 95-S-90, we concluded that because an effective system of internal controls had not been established over purchasing and inventory practices at State prisons, purchases may have been more costly than necessary and inventory items were not adequately protected against waste, loss and abuse. In our follow-up review, we found that some progress has been made in addressing the control weaknesses identified in our prior audit. However, additional actions are needed if our prior audit recommendations are to be fully implemented.
