Auditor General's Findings

According to the Auditor General Department’s 2018-2019 Annual Report, MICAF exceeded its approved expenditure on three components of its Capital Budget by $73.6 million. However, despite requests, no evidence of approval for the reallocation of funds to facilitate these excesses was presented.

The Auditor General also identified 103 instances where the Ministry exceeded its approved budget by a total of $191.8 million on various Objects within its Recurrent Account. This included seven instances of excess relating to Object 21 – Compensation of Employees totalling $4.8 million. However, the AuGD was unable to reconcile the Virements for the Recurrent Account because the Virement schedule presented was incomplete. The modified schedule provided by the Ministry subsequent to the audit still did not facilitate reconciliation.
