Details lacking in Ill. property inventory

SPRINGFIELD – An audit finds the agency that keeps track of all Illinois state property does a poor job.

Auditor General William Holland’s review Thursday shows the Department of Central Management Services’ inventory includes only a fraction of what the state controls.

The review said the department has made little progress in developing a computerized list required by state law.

CMS spokesman Mike Claffey said it has all the records about its property – just not in a central depository. He said that would be too expensive.
