FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

NONPAYMENT OF REVOLVING FUND INVOICES

 

The Office of Lieutenant Governor (Office) did not timely approve and pay internal service invoices to the Department of Central Management Services (DCMS).

 

The Office uses various Electronic Data Processing (EDP) services that are provided by DCMS.The Office used /purchased EDP services in excess of the amounts appropriated by the legislature for those types of expenditures.The Office owed DCMS the following amounts at June 30 for the following fiscal years:

 

FY08†††††††††††††† $ 52,868

FY09†††††††††††††† †† 29,939

TOTAL††††††††††† $ 82,807

 

We noted the Office expended their total EDP appropriation of $15,000 for FY 2008 and $31,700 for FY 2009 for these services.However, these amounts were significantly short of actual DCMS services billed. (Finding 1, pages 9-10)

 

We recommended the Office work with Office of Management and Budget to resolve its outstanding balance and seek adequate appropriations to cover its EDP needs.

 

Officials associated with the Office, which now work for the Office of the Governor, agreed with the finding.
