Parking Authority P-Card Review Turns Up ‘No Issues’

by Categorized: City Hall, Finance, Hartford Parking Authority, Hartford Public Library, Internal Audit Commission, Parking, Purchasing Cards, Schools, Spending Date:

After reviewing records for several city employee purchasing cards and making recommendations for changes, Hartford’s internal audit commission said late last month that it also would look into purchases made by school, library and parking authority employees.

On Friday, it released the results of the Hartford Parking Authority city credit card review. In a two-page document, Deputy Chief Auditor Craig Trujillo said the commission reviewed 25 purchases (about half of the overall transactions made so far this fiscal year) totaling $8,489. It found no problems with the purchases made, he said.

“We examined evidential matter supporting p-card transactions and compliance to spending policies and procedures,” Trujillo wrote. “We are pleased to report that the results of our examination disclosed no issues that warrant disclosure or management’s attention.”

No word yet on the results of the school or library employees’ p-card reviews.

    The problem is not the P-Card “System” The problem is a lack of integrity in the system. Every accounting system is built upon trust and integrity without which there will be fraud.

    When trying to clean a baby one does not throw out the baby with the dirty bath water. Change the dirty water and the baby will be clean. The miss use of P-Cards is not accidental, fire anyone that misuses the P-Cards for any reason! Then you will return trust and integrity to the system.
