The Public Procurement Authority has indicted the Ghana Audit Service in the controversial purchase of some 32 vehicles by the Service.
The Service is said to have spent 7.6 million Ghana cedis from combined funding sources of its 2017 budgetary allocation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in procuring those vehicles while contravening public procurement regulations in the process, in 2018.
The Public Procurement Authority was asked to probe the matter despite denials by the Service.
The probe according to details available has been concluded and findings forwarded to the Attorney-General.
According a publication by citifmonline, the report upholds infractions in the methods employed by the Audit Service for the controversial purchase.
It, however, directs that the supplier should be paid off to avoid a case of financial loss to the state.
The report also questions the constitution of the Audit Service’s Entity Tender, saying it did not conform to procedures set forth by the Service’s established law.
