South Tyneside Homes “open to fraud”

leave a comment »

Auditor’s judgement

Auditors KPMG found staff at South Tyneside Homes, which manages around 19,000 homes on behalf of South Tyneside Council, were able to make transactions without approval from their seniors.

Their report said: ‘There is the risk that journals get posted that have not been properly checked and authorised. The system is open to fraud and potential mis-statement.

Of course it’s all well and good being open and transparent, but if you need KPMG to be finding these details and pointing them out, then surely that indicates that someone within the management team of South Tyneside Homes isn’t exactly covering themselves in glory!
