(The Herald Sun) A draft report from a performance audit of the Durham County ABC Board said detailed receipts weren’t submitted on a number of occasions in a review of credit card purchases, among other findings.
The audit is separate from the N.C. Alcohol Law Enforcement investigation of the Durham County ABC Board requested in May by the N.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission administrator, said Agnes Stevens, the commission’s public affairs director.
All local ABC boards in state will undergo performance audits, Stevens said, as a result of 2010 ABC reform legislation. In addition, they also undergo annual financial audits. She said those are due to the commission Sept. 30.
“The performance audit was not prompted by the ALE investigation,” Stevens said in an email. “The performance audit and the ALE investigation of the Durham (County) ABC Board are two different matters,” she added.
The draft of the performance audit findings was presented at a Durham ABC Board meeting on Monday, Stevens said. The board has until Oct. 28 to review the information and respond with any updated information, she said.
Among the findings was that the Durham County ABC Board has 13 credit cards, but hasn’t adopted a written credit card usage policy.
