USF – 70+Million Education Project Poorly Monitored

Share This:

Auditor General's Findings

Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) entered into an agreement with the Universal Service Fund (USF) to provide training under the Technology Advancement Programme (TAP) at a cost of $70 million and $3.8 million for rental. The MOU for the TAP between USF and CMU however, did not stipulate how the funds disbursed should be allocated.

The Auditor General, in the 2019 Special Audit of CMU, found that USF was less effective in its oversight and monitoring of TAP when compared to the Phase II Capacity Building Programme. The AuGD saw no evidence that USF required periodic reporting from CMU to satisfy itself that the TAP was being implemented according to plan.
