Auditor General's Findings

The Auditor General’s 2019 Annual report (which covers the 2018/19 Financial Year) revealed accounting discrepancies for the Ministry of Transport’s Appropriations-in-Aid.

  1. The actual Appropriations-in-aid (AIA) expenditure for Head 6500 (Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing) exceeded the approved budget by approximately $102.9 million.
  2. The AIA collected by the Toll Road Authority was understated by $961,631 for the 2015/2016 financial year.
  3. The Auditor General was also unable to verify AIA expenditure amounting to approximately $201.2 million for the 2015/2016 financial year relating to the Caribbean Maritime Institute due to the absence of sufficient supporting documents.

Despite requests, the Ministry did not provide the Auditor General with the relevant documents required for review.
