We undertook this audit because the Fire Chief requested an audit of the department's financial transaction between February 2018 through February 2021 to assess compliance with city policies.
- The department does not reconcile revenue and does not segregate incompatible duties associated with invoicing, payment collection, and recordkeeping, which increases the risk of undetected fraud and theft.
- The department is recording special event revenues to a trust fund expense account rather than a revenue account.
- Staff told us that the department does not have written policies and procedures.
