AEROTEL – $32.44 million paid out to 16 staff members without required approval of Ministry of Finance

Auditor General's Findings

Between January 2012 and December 2015, AEROTEL paid $32.44 million in Travelling Allowances to 16 members of staff without MoFPS approval. This was in breach of Section 20 of the PBMA Act, which indicates that in relation to emoluments payable to staff of a public body, the Board shall act in accordance with guidelines issued from time to time by the Minister responsible for the Public Service. AEROTEL’s failure to obtain the Minister’s approval not only breached the Government’s guidelines but also undermined the transparency and accountability process and has resulted in unauthorized payments.
