SANTO DOMINGO – The Northern Energy Distribution Company (Edenorte) has been found to have serious irregularities during the period between September 2020 and April 2021, according to an audit conducted by the Comptroller General of the Dominican Republic.

The audit report, published on June 22, highlights various anomalies, including expired leased vehicle contracts, bank transfers in transit for over a year, discrepancies in the Inventory of Meters and Transformers, and inconsistencies in the Fixed Assets Assistant and the Distribution Map.

One of the major findings of the report is the significant difference between the number of vehicle units recorded in the accounting records (330) and the number registered with the Internal Revenue Service (DGII) (461), while the actual physical count is only 131.

Furthermore, the audit reveals that the institution lacks a control sheet for the assignment of the 432 vehicles, of which 192 are owned and 245 are rented.
