PAC: “Our warnings on infractions are being taken serious”---Averdzi

Chairman of the Public Account Committee (PAC), Dr. James Kluste Averdzi has revealed that Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) are taking warnings against infractions when they come before the committee seriously.  

According to the PAC chairman Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) are also doing same hence the size of the Auditor-Generals’ report for 2017 has reduced drastically. 

He further noted in an interview that he is hoping that infractions would be eliminated completely, as enough notification has been given to the MDAs and MMDAs that with the 2017 report infractions would not be tolerated. 

“Our warnings in the past is now reflecting as to what officials are suppose to do,  but there are still issues in the report that should be address, we are saying now that we would not allow you to go and bring receipt to support a transaction”.

Dr. Averdzi emphasised that at the point of audit if you were unable to provide receipt and payment vultures, officials would be sanctioned as they would be asked to refund monies because they were unable to produce those documents at the time of audit.

They would sit up, “I can tell you in the 2020 Auditor-Generals report which would come in 2021 or 2022 we might see a nil infractions in the AG’s report”.
