Follow-Up: More on lone county audit finding

As we reported last week, Anderson County had no audit findings in the state’s annual financial report in either the office of accounts and budgets or the school department.
There was one finding under the Circuit Court Clerk’s office, which Clerk William Jones says was a result of the office’s software; a system he inherited from his predecessor. That software “did not print all required reports,” Anderson County Budget Director Chris Phillips said in a news release you can read on our website.
The state says Jones’ office “began using a new computer court application in August 2013 that did not provide the office the ability to generate a docket trial balance.”
The audit report states that “the failure to accurately reconcile the execution docket trial balances with the general ledger application in a timely manner could lead to inaccurate accounting records and increases the risk of misappropriation of funds.”
Te software provider, Icon Software Corp., has assured Jones that it is working “to identify the causes for this finding and to resolve each cause expeditiously.”
