Auditor General's Findings

In 2019, the Auditor General’s Department (AuGD) conducted a Special Audit on the Caribbean Maritime University.

The audit revealed that no approval was received for the salaries of 466 employees who received an aggregate annual basic salary of approximately $676.8 million for the 2018-19 period.

Travelling allowance was approved in July 2010 for only 25 officers, yet in 2018-19 CMU paid travelling allowance totalling approximately $95.7 million to 119 officers.

The President also approved the engagement of four officers with combined emoluments of $12.2 million per annum, in breach of CMU’s Human Resources Policy.
