Receipts Misplaced

Public department rorts are nothing new, but this is taking it to new levels:

A SECRET auditor’s report found that almost $1 million has gone missing from a West Australian Aboriginal health organisation through unexplained debts, salary over-payments, undocumented travel expenses and personal loans.

The report by accounting firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu – looking at the books for the 2000 and 2001 financial years – shows “payments totalling $927,148 were either not supported by appropriate documentation or proper authorisation”.

WAACCHO, the representative body for Western Australia’s 19 Aboriginal health services, currently operates on a budget of about $500,000.

They would have been lucky to have enough left over to pay their power bill.
