The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament has begun sitting to look into the Auditor General’s Report on activities of State Institutions for 2016.
The Committee will consider reports on the Consolidated Fund as well as that of some Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs.
The Committee is expected to sit for a week.
The Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, James Klutse Avedzi, said members will also check compliance of earlier directives to institutions who in previous reports were cited for various infractions.
The committee will then consider and recommend punishment for institutions that have not corrected their infractions as prescribed by law.
State-funded Institutions will be the first to appear before the committee, starting with the Finance Ministry and the Controller and Accountant General’s department
