At no time in the last three years has a DCMS employee been reprimanded or prosecuted due to theft of departmental property. For the years 2006-07 and 2008-09 no DCMS employee has had their contract of employment terminated due to theft of departmental property. In the year 2007-08, one employee had their employment contract terminated due to the misuse of a Government procurement card on unauthorised purchases. This matter is currently the subject of legal proceedings before the High Court, and it would not be appropriate to offer further details at this stage.
