Oklahoma agency over state purchasing releases critical internal audit
The state agency responsible for overseeing purchases by other state agencies has failed to comply with state requirements for purchase card expenditures by its own employees, according to an internal audit obtained by The Oklahoman.
The Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) was out of compliance with the Central Purchasing Act on more than $1 million in purchase card expenditures, auditors reported.
Agencies are required to have approved internal purchasing procedures on file with the state purchasing director before they can use purchase cards for transactions that exceed $5,000.
The agency's employees exceeded that $5,000 limit on 75 purchases totaling $1,081,020 without having approved purchasing procedures on file, auditors said. The agency is headed by state Secretary of Finance Preston Doerflinger.
