Auditors Find Waste In State Highway Spending

Updated: Tuesday, November 27 2012, 08:27 PM EST
The State Highway Administration is still spending money without proper approvals and failing to monitor contract workers according to a recently released audit. 

The report comes after a special audit released last year found similarly lax controls. 

State auditors found millions of spending on projects that have not been approved by the state spending board.  Auditors ALSO found SHA did not do enough to verify time sheets submitted by outside consultants. 

The audit cited the agency which spends tens of millions in federal and state highway funds for “circumventing” spending laws. 

Auditors also concluded that the SHA was not adequately monitoring speed cameras for accuracy or insuring that the private contractor running the so-called Safezone program  was meeting  contractual benchmarks.
