Auditor General's Findings

The Auditor General’s 2017/2018 Annual Report (Section 3.2.100) informed that the Auditor General was unable to verify the existence of forty-three (43) items of computer equipment costing $7,799,754 because the Ministry of Health’s Fixed Asset Inventory was incomplete.

Additionally, the responsible officer was unaware of the acquisition of the assets and consequently, was not able to identify their location.
