MOFPS – $77 million in Uncleared Advances

Share This:

Auditor General's Findings

At the tabling of the Auditor-General’s Report for FY 2018/2019, there was still a need for improvement in the management of the Ministry of Finance’s advances to ensure outstanding advances were reconciled and cleared in a timely manner.

Consequently, as at March 31, 2019, advances totalling $77.10 million remain uncleared; of which $16.5 million have been outstanding for more than 12 months.

According to the Auditor-General’s Department, uncleared advances remaining on the Ministry’s records for prolonged periods may be difficult to recover, resulting in loss of public funds. Furthermore, it will be difficult to determine whether the amounts advanced were used for the intended purposes where supporting documents are not presented to clear these advances.
