Same old song.
According to an article in the Times the other day the city’s purchasing (credit) card system has rules that are ignored on a wide-spread basis.
Seventy-seven percent of the 1,958 card transactions audited did not have a receipt in the city’s centralized files.
Ninety-two percent of travel request forms weren’t either.
The city’s internal auditor published the report and “recommended at least 10 areas where the mayor and council as well [as] the office of the city manager need to improve on the use and documentation of procurement cards” according to the Times article.
I guess that they think that rules are for citizens, not for them.
Many of us would learn the rules when dealing with public money so that we do the right thing.
We deserve better
