General News of Tuesday, 12 December 2017
62 organisations have been surcharged by the Auditor for receiving payments from the state without any documentation as proof.
The surcharge certificates totaling GH?8,886,791.9101742 cover the period between December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2015.
The companies, mostly private organisations, also include some state institutions and staff of some government agencies.
In a release by the Auditor General’s office, it said that efforts to track down the listed companies have been fruitless forcing them publish their names.
It also advised the organisations or individuals “to contact the Auditor General’s Office, Room 23, New Block, Ministries Block ‘O’, Accra for their certificates not later than 20th December 2017; after which date they shall be deemed to have been duly served.”
Daniel Domelevo, the Auditor General in his recent report to Parliament, indicated his commitment to surcharge anyone or organisation that took monies from the state which they did not deserve.
In exhibiting that determination to recover the wrongfully paid funds back to the state, Mr. Domelevo issued surcharge certificates against them for the period of the audit as indicated against their names in the table below.
