Can you please tell me:
Who is responsible for ordering the printing of car park scratch cards?
Who is the printing company used and are they in Jersey?
Is an inventory kept of how many books are ordered and how much revenue should be collected from sales?
Are these cards kept under lock and key in a secure place?
Is a stock take or stock control ever carried out on stock held versus sales?
The Department for Infrastructure Parking Control Section, is responsible for the ordering and printing of car park pay (scratch) cards. These are ordered in accordance with agreed timescales for production to ensure an adequate stock level is available for resale.
The pay (scratch) cards are ordered through a contracted supplier, Imperial Civil Enforcement Solutions (ICES), who also provide a local delivery service to retailers. The printer currently used by ICES is Orion Security Print who is contracted to ICES, not the Department for Infrastructure. The contractual requirement between ICES and the Department for Infrastructure is that a suitable printer be used. Orion Security Print is based in the UK.
A record is maintained of stock ordered, received and sold and financial records against this are checked regularly by members of the Finance team within the Department for Infrastructure.
Once received in Jersey, pay (scratch) cards are kept in secure storage areas which are under the control of the Department for Infrastructure.
Regular stock checks are carried out, at least once a month, on the scratch cards held in stock prior to sale.
