Del. Habeeb and Sen. Stanley frustrated with CSA audit results

Delegate Greg Habeeb

SALEM – Delegate Greg Habeeb (R-Salem) and Senator Bill Stanley (R-Franklin County) released the following statement Friday on the results of an audit of the Comprehensive Services Act:

“Both of us believe very strongly in transparency and accountability in government and that is why we were frustrated with the results of Roanoke City’s audit of Comprehensive Services Act Vendors.

“We believe the results of this audit indicate that further investigation is necessary. We need an extensive and complete look at where these tax dollars are going, and making sure they’re going to the right places. All localities and agencies across the Commonwealth involved with the Office of Comprehensive Services should conduct independent audits to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being used wisely and efficiently and especially without being wasted.

“The Commonwealth directs over $200 million per year toward this program. Every dollar spent by the state should be scrutinized. This is something all citizens of the Commonwealth expect of elected officials, state agencies and their contractors.

“Our offices will continue to watch this issue closely and take actions that will protect the citizens of Virginia.”
