Employees are using Defence credit cards without control

Employees of the Defense has largely made the purchases with the provided credit card without any kind of documentation or control.

It shows a preliminary internal audit in the defence command, Hærkommandoen and the Defence Hovedværksteder, as Radio4've got access to.

In both Poker and Hærkommandoen lacked documentation for almost every five procurement with Defence rejsekreditkort.

- It is appalling and quite unusual. The fact that you do not comply with so simple things as to document its costs is evidence that something is very wrong, says Kurt Klaudi Klausen to Radio4.

He is a professor of public management at the University of Southern denmark.

the Audit also shows that in several cases used twice as much on accommodation, as it is allowed.

At Hærkommandoen and national defense have respectively 15 and 14 percent of the cases exceeded the maximum for an accommodation.

the Annex also shows that more employees have used the credit card to it, that according to Radio4 similar to private procurement.

This applies, among other things, a procurement 6503 crowns in the store, the HiFi Club and 1412 crowns in the clothing store Tommy Hilfiger.

In the more curious department is the Defence and the credit card has also been used in two sex shops in respectively Aalborg and Aarhus.

According to the Berlingske tidende, is dispensed more than 10.500 credit card to the employees under the ministry of Defence.

Klaus Kurt Klaudi believe that the review, which is based on a sample, evidence of a 'løsagtig culture'.

the Spokesperson for the Defense, colonel Susanne Lund, said in a written response to Radio4, to take the findings seriously.

- The preliminary conclusions indicate that there is too many bugs, when our employees use firmabetalingskort in connection with the travel, she says.

- the Reason is mostly that there is not enough knowledge of the internal rules for the use of firmabetalingskort in connection with the missions. Of course, it is not good enough.
