The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will soon come up with a detailed analysis and recommendations on the Auditor General’s 2010/11report.
The report that is being scrutinized indicates that up to Rwf 9.7 billion could not be accounted for by public institutions.
According to the vice chairperson of PAC, Evode Kalima, his committee is currently working with the Auditor and will present its findings towards the end of this month.
“Due to the sensitivity of the cases we are working on, we decided to hold our meetings in closed sessions and we intend to summon some people mentioned in the report after we present it to the Plenary Assembly,” said Kalima.
PAC is charged with scrutinizing the report of the Auditor General with respect to the use of national budget and patrimony and preparation of draft recommendations within six (6) months of the date of submission of such reports to the plenary session.
The 2009/10 AG’s report indicates that 36 institutions incurred wasteful expenditure amounting to Rwf 1 billion that could have been avoided had they complied with laws, regulations and procedures in force.
Before the establishment of PAC, previous reports were analyzed by the Standing Committee on Budget and National Patrimony which presented their findings to the Plenary Assembly.
