Audit criticizes Va. game agency's money controls

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A recent state audit says the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has problems with money controls.

The department collects money for some other agencies and then reimburses them.

The audit found that the department didn't adequately track these transactions. In one case, another agency was overpaid by nearly $1 million and later underpaid by more than $500,000.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( ) says the Office of the Auditor of Public Accounts released a report of the findings on Monday.

DeAnn Compton directed the audit. She tells the newspaper that the audit didn't find any criminal wrongdoing.

She attributes much of the problem to turnover among the department's money managers.

Last week, department director Bob Duncan announced that he was making changes in senior management in response to the audit.
