Auditor General's Findings
Furniture and equipment purchased between April 2014 and February 2016 amounting to $17.8 million were not included in MICAF’s inventory records. The AG found that the procurement of assets within the Ministry was not always initiated by the Facilities Unit. This contributed to the Ministry’s failure to adequately account for assets purchased, as these assets were not marked and inventoried prior to distribution.
Subsequent to the AG’s report, the Ministry advised that steps have been taken to update the inventory and that the exercise should be completed by March 2017.
