The 2021 Auditor-Generals Report has cited the management of Builsa South District for failing to put to use, three completed projects within the district.
According to the report, the assembly awarded three contracts at the sum of GH¢551,091.50. The report states that an amount of GH¢357,141.00 has been paid but the projects are yet to be put to use.
“On the contrary, we noted that management of Builsa South District Assembly awarded three contracts at a sum of GH¢551,091.50, out of which GH¢357,141.00 was paid on completion but the projects had not been put to use.”
According to the report, the management of the assembly indicated the lack of water and electricity as the main reasons for the non-usage of the completed projects.
“Management stated that the place has not been put to use due to lack of water and electricity. Non-usage of the projects could result in deterioration of the facilities thereby denying the communities of the intended purposes. Consequently, this could result in wasteful expenditure.”
The Auditor General, therefore, recommended that the management of the assembly resolve the challenges preventing the usage of the projects without delay.
“We recommended that the management of the Builsa South District Assembly should resolve the challenges preventing the use of the projects without delay and put them to use.”
