Audit: Purchasing issues at TWRA


NASHVILLE (AP) - A state audit has found issues with tracking credit card expenses and with reporting lost or stolen equipment at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

The state comptroller's office says that its auditors found dozens of problems with credit card purchases, including a violation of purchasing limits and nine transactions in which employees of the TWRA paid for items prohibited under state policies.

State Sen. Frank Niceley, R-Strawberry Fields, told The Tennessean the audit makes the agency appear out of control.

Next year, lawmakers are scheduled to debate whether to extend the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission's charter or replace it. An initial hearing on the issue will take place next week.
