Oklahoma state auditor and inspector accuses well commission of fraud
State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones on Thursday said the Oklahoma Marginal Well Commission negligence allowed for “widespread abuse and potential fraud resulting in questioned costs of $10,028.”
In once instance, an extra day of lodging was reported because of a “flight cancellation due to weather” even though the auditor's report found that “an American Airlines representative verified the flight operated as scheduled.”
The report also found three occasions where parking receipt dates did not match travel claim dates.
The auditor's report recommends increased monitoring of the marginal well commission's activities and called for a more active role from its nine commissioners. The auditor also recommended that the attorney general's office evaluate the agency's activities “to determine if further investigation is warranted.”
