The Garu District in the Upper East Region has failed to allocate funds for self-help projects within the district. This was contained in the 2021 Auditor-General’s report.

This was in direct contravention of the guidelines for the utilisation of the DACF.

“Part 1 of the Guidelines for the Utilisation of the DACF for 2019 issued by the Administrator of District Assembly Common Fund provides that up to 5% of the Assembly’s total net receipts after provision of funds for the mandatory projects should be used in self-help projects.”

The Garu District, however, failed to allocate a total of GH¢38,594.42 which represents the 5% of GH¢771,888.30 received as DACF for the year 2021 for self-help projects. 

“Contrary to this guideline, the Garu District Assembly did not allocate a total of GH¢38,594.42 for self-help projects, representing 5% of GH¢771,888.30 DACF received for the year. This has denied the various communities the funds to support their self-help projects.”

The Auditor-General, therefore, recommended that the district assembly should ensure compliance with the guidelines of the DACF and release the required allocation to the various communities for their self-help projects.

“We recommended to the management of the Assembly to ensure compliance with the DACF Guidelines and release the required allocation to the various communities for their self-help projects.”
