The Auditor General’s Audit Work Plan included a review of storage warehouses. The objective of this review was to determine if City stores run by the Materials Management Stores and Distribution Unit in Purchasing and Materials Management Division are being fully utilized and providing cost-effective services. The findings are relevant for all store operations in the City.
This report contains nine recommendations along with a management response to each of the recommendations. The implementation of these recommendations will improve the overall operating efficiencies by maximizing the capacity of City store operations to supply materials to all City business units, including agencies and corporations. Integrating technology into the City store operations will also help to achieve optimum performance.
This report also recommends a status report be provided to Council on the Yards Consolidation Study.
