Auditor General's Findings

In the 2018/19 Annual Report the Auditor General’s Department found that Parliament approved $1.05 Billion in the MLGCD Recurrent Budget (for the Social Development Commission)

However, the SDC did not submit the 2018-19 financial statements for audit in keeping with Section 13 (1) of the Jamaica Social Welfare Commission Act. Therefore, stakeholders would have been denied information to assess SDC’s stewardship over the administration of public fund. The MLGCD subsequently indicated that the SDC will be presenting the 2018/19 financial statements by January 31, 2020.
