The Pomona, CA, Main Post Office is in the Santa Ana District of the Pacific Area. OIG data analytics identified that the Pomona Main Post Office conducted accountability examinations in fiscal year (FY) 2019 within appropriate tolerance levels. Accountability examinations include retail floor stock (stamps sold on the retail floor), unit reserve stock (stamps used to replenish those sold on the retail floor), cash credits (cash retained in drawers after daily deposit), and money orders. Inventory can be transferred between segments; therefore, all segments of inventory must be counted to ensure accuracy.
Previous counts of unit reserve stamp stock counted December 7, 2018, and retail floor stamp stock counted July 31, 2019, accountabilities had shortages of $35 and $46, respectively. The objective of this audit was to determine whether internal controls over accountable paper and postal funds at the Pomona Main Post Office were managed effectively.
