APS doesn't compile audit results.

At 7:23 am on Tuesday, March 23, I emailed APS Director of Communications Rigo Chavez and asked him where I could find a list of (other than financial) audits done on the leadership of the APS.

I asked him to respond by email, rather than wasting tax dollars and time printing a letter and mailing it to me.

His response arrived yesterday via snail mail. Score one for Chavez' relentless need to obfuscate and delay the process, even at tax payer expense.

His response, "I don't know that the district maintains lists of audits other than those regarding finances."

There is a lot to be read into his response, like, there may be a list, but he doesn't know about it, and does feel like making any inquiries.

I will take it on its face; just like they don't keep a list of all of the vehicles in the APS Fleet Maintenance Division, link, APS doesn't keep track of old audits either.

That would explain why a recent audit revealed, the leadership of the APS does not pay any attention to audit findings; not enough anyway to cause them to change policies, rules or regulations in response.

Which begs a question; when is enough, enough?
