Oklahoma Audit Finds Too Many Vehicles

December 1, 2004

OKLAHOMA CITY – A state audit found that selling some of Oklahoma´s state-owned vehicles along with other changes could save $21 million, according to the Associated Press.Overspending has occurred due to the lack of oversight on purchasing and selling vehicles and loose regulations on maintenance and vehicle take-home policies, said state auditor Jeff McMahan.The audit cited instances where the state paid for some vehicles to get $50 to $100 car washes and detail work, reported the AP.In addition, the state owns 233 sport utility vehicles for work that could be done in a less expensive vehicle, said McMahan.Gov. Brad Henry requested the audit in December 2003 to determine if state vehicles are being used economically and efficiently, reported ChannelOklahoma.com.
