The Office of the Virgin Islands Inspector General investigated the allegation that an employee of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) had prepared and issued several vehicle registrations without those vehicles having been inspected by an authorized Motor Vehicle Inspector, in violation of established rules and procedures. The investigation has confirmed that in fact the vehicles were registered without the proper inspection as required by the BMV rules and regulations. We also found that there was the unauthorized use of the inspector’s stamp for the purpose of not only the issuance of new registrations, but in the clearance of vehicles leaving the territory. As a result, we have concluded that the Office Manager: (i) violated the BMV’s operating procedures by processing the vehicle registrations without the proper inspections; (ii) manipulated the BMV’s computer system to show that the vehicles were properly inspected when they were not; and, (iii) by the repeated violations of the policies and procedures displayed a pattern of disregard to the BMV’s operating procedures.
