Audit called for of KCS P-Card use

From the Knox County Commission forum, Chairman Brad Anders writes:

After speaking with Andrea, we have concluded that it would best for her to begin developing the audit of Knox County Schools meals program and also their P-Card controls. I am aware there is a special called meeting for November the 10th, but we felt that due to the exigency of the issues she should go ahead and begin the work. During our discussion Andrea advised me that the role of an Internal Auditor is to begin work on risk issues as soon as they identify them. So that we did not over step rules of the Audit Charter, we consulted the Law Director and Deputy Director to make sure we were in compliance and they agreed with our thought process and the need to begin the work now. Andrea has also spoken with the external auditor and the Sheriff’s office in regard to her work and assured them any work she does will not impair any work they are already completing.

Andrea Addis is the county’s internal auditor.

    Your story today in the paper had a big mistake. You wrote, “In the meantime, McIntyre and the school board asked for a review of the nutrition office, and a five-year review of the credit card use.” That never happened. See

    McIntyre was shaken when the five year audit was ask for. He fought it. You usually do a good job. Not on this one. Did you see the BOE meeting?

  2. John Knox says:

    McIntyre was shaken because there is something going on that we don’t know about. Another waste of taxpayer money.

So what do you think?
