Auditor General Eugene DePasquale Tuesday announced his department will conduct a performance audit of the Gaming Control Board next year.
“It’s been more than 10 years since the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board was created to oversee slot machine and casino gambling in the state,” DePasquale noted. “Two previous audits included a significant number of recommendations for the relatively young state agency. We need to ensure that the board is following up on our recommendations and fulfilling its responsibilities to taxpayers as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
In addition to following up on the nine findings and 27 recommendations made in the previous two audits, the department’s review is expected to include an audit of the functions, roles and responsibilities of the Gaming Control Board’s Bureau of Investigations and Enforcement.The December 2010 audit report is available online and the May 2009 audit report is also available online.
