Auditors cited outdated computers, underfunding, understaffing and poor communication between government agencies.
The audit says the Georgia Bureau of Investigation takes too long to add out-of-state offenders, allowing cases to pile up. It says in-state offenders also aren't being listed or tracked in a timely fashion.
GBI spokesman John Bankhead says the two-person office running the registry is doing the best it can, and the GBI is aware of what it needs to fix. He says the issue is funding.
