Purchase Card Inspection, Fiscal Year 2017

Report Details

Report Description: 
Our office performs ongoing data analysis and financial monitoring activities in order to continuously evaluate the State’s systems of internal controls. During previous engagements, we identified issues regarding the use and monitoring of State purchasing credit cards (PCards).The PCard program is intended to be a cost effective method to purchase and pay for small dollar transactions. The State receives rebates that can provide additional funding during times when resources are shrinking, while also avoiding costs by issuing payments directly to vendors.We observed patterns of spending, which indicated that certain agencies and school districts incurred minimal PCard use, potentially missing rebate opportunities. We reported this observation to the Financial Services section of Governor Carney’s Government Efficiency and Accountability Review Board (GEAR). Internal control findings were communicated directly to the agency or school district initiating the transaction.
