Internal audit finds 10 fixes needed in Fulton elections department

An internal audit of Fulton County’s elections department found 10 administrative and fiscal management issues during the rollercoaster 2020 cycle that need corrective action. Among the findings: a lack of standard operating procedures in the department; inconsistent procurement procedures; untimely payment of invoices; improper payment of services; inadequate safeguarding of assets; and inadequate departmental accountability and oversight of financial transactions. The audit, which has not been officially released but was obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday, also noted one concern over the misclassification of expenditures.
