The Auditor General has surcharged some 62 organisations for receiving payments from the state with no available documentation covering them.
The surcharge certificates totalling GHȻ8,886,791.9101742 cover the period between December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2015.
The organisations, which are mostly private entities, also include some state institutions as well as staff of some government entities.
According to a release from the Auditor General’s office, efforts to track down the listed companies have been fruitless leaving them with no option but to publish their names.
It further 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.”
The Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo, in his recent report to Parliament indicated his resolve to surcharge anyone or organisation that took monies from the state which they did not deserve.
To demonstrate his determination to recoup these 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.
