Auditor reveals findings on Hawaii county pCards

The Hawaii County Council Finance Committee met on Tuesday over government issued credit cards or pCards.

A legislative auditor took a look at 570 transactions in the 2014 calendar year that totals $94,000.

They found that internal controls were working as designed.

But they also found that 154 transactions worth $29,000 did not follow county policy, had questionable business purposes and may have violated state law.

“I mean if you’re doing something. You’re taking the candy, and no one says ‘no’ and just over looks. It just goes on. We’re all enabling,” said Hawaii County Council member Margaret Willie.

The auditor gave the committee six recommendations, including strengthening their monitoring of pCard usage, ongoing training for card holders and supervisors, and updating policies and procedures.
