Auditor General's Findings

In the 2018/19 Annual Report the Auditor General’s Department found that Parliament approved $13.3 billion for the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development (MLGCD) to carry out its operations. However, the MLGCD failed to submit the 2018/2019 Appropriation Accounts for all three Heads for audit scrutiny in keeping with Section 24 (1) (a) and (b) of the Financial Administration and Audit (FAA) Act.

Consequently, Parliament as well as other key stakeholders would have been denied timely information in assessing the results of the Budget implementation and to guide their review of subsequent budget submission. The MLGCD indicated that the delay in the submission of the Appropriation Accounts was caused by the challenges faced with the
implementation of the Government Financial Management System (GFMS).
