Audit Finds Millions In Questionable Rogers County Costs
State audits have identified more than $5.5 million in questionable costs in Rogers County, including an allegedly fraudulent invoice for $36,000 that was submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The reports released this week detail a period from July, 1, 2010, to July 30, 2012. The audit identified 12 "items of interest" in connection with a FEMA contract issued after severe storms, tornadoes and flooding.
The reports include expenditures that were claimed without enough documentation and invoices that were submitted twice for reimbursement. The audit also flagged a fictitious invoice for more than $36,000 that was submitted for reimbursement.
State Auditor Gary Jones tells the Tulsa World that the reports have been sent to prosecutors for their review.
