The City of Albuquerque can realize annual cost savings of $273,000, annual cost recoveries of $240,000 and continue the proactive approach to reduce the costs of telecom operations through the implementation of innovative technologies. The City lacks internal controls to ensure the accuracy, efficiency and optimization of telecom services. The overall lack of internal controls is a major factor for the accumulated balance of $1.3 million in the City’s Communication Fund as of June 30, 2013 (unaudited). The fund balance represents the amount departments have been overcharged for communication services.
The Department of Finance and Administrative Services' Purchasing Division can improve upon the valuable services it provides to the City and contractors by acceptance and implementation of the following recommendations: (a) The Purchasing Division should require that City Departments attend contract training more frequently; (b) The Purchasing Division should review its internal control processes and ensure that all staff have a clear understanding; and (c) Employee access to CTS should be revoked following the employee’s change of employment.
