- Full Report:
GAO reviewed internal control weaknesses at the 6th Infantry Division and the Army Garrison, Alaska. GAO found that: (1) information on equipment quantities or dollar values was not reliable due to deficiencies in the automated support system; (2) items turned in to the installation by other units were not recorded in inventory and accounting records; (3) there were no procedures to ensure that completed projects were recorded promptly in the general ledger; (4) half of the discrepancy reports reviewed were either not properly documented or were not filed in accordance with Army regulations; (5) adequate controls did not exist to ensure that separated employees were promptly removed from the payroll system; and (6) lack of controls over timely payment processing resulted in late payments.
