Auditor General's Findings
Decision No. 17 of the Cabinet approved an Accountability Framework that required Permanent Secretaries to obtain copies of Board Minutes from all public bodies, under their portfolio. The Auditor General found that while the Office of the Prime Minister did receive quarterly, half-yearly and annual reports from NHT, the Permanent Secretary did not request copies of the Board Minutes. The then Permanent Secretary, Onika Miller had advised the AG that she was not aware of the transaction and had learnt of the matter via the media.
