Chairman of Public Accounts Committee of Parliament, James Klutse Avedzi, is calling for sanctions against Finance Ministry officials who supervised a contract awarded to assets recovery agency, Kroll Associates for no work done.
A 2018 Auditor-General’s report revealed, the government paid $1million to Kroll Associates for non-performance.
The report further showed that although the contract was signed in 2017, some payments made by the Finance Ministry predated the award of the contract.
Mr. Avedzi is pushing for the contractor to refund the money with interest.
“If this Kroll Associates has been awarded the contract to perform certain functions, have they performed the duty? Has that work been certified before payment was made?
“If answers to these questions are all no, it means there is something wrong somewhere and the officers who are involved must be sanctioned. The contract must be abrogated and the company refunds the money,” James Klutse Avedzi said on Joy News’ Tuesday.
