TCAT is ready to hire an outside forensic auditing firm to look into the nearly quarter-million dollars allegedly embezzled by former employee Pamela Johnson.

The former accounts assistant at TCAT was arrested earlier this month for allegedly misdirecting $247,000 in funds.

Johnson was first suspended by the transit agency in mid-March, and then terminated once a charge was brought against her.

TCAT has now issued a Request for Proposal to get applications from firms ready to do an audit.

That audit will be done to confirm the amount stolen, and a review will be done of how the alleged crime happened, and how to prevent it from happening again in the future.
