Summary of Findings
The Builsa North District Assembly scored 48 per cent in the overall assessment of its performance, based on the GAS audit findings. Strengths: The Assembly’s major strength is in capital project initiation largely because it involves communities and other stakeholders in selecting the projects. Weaknesses: The audit revealed gaps in how the Assembly procures and engages contractors, monitors and supervises the execution of projects, makes payments to contractors, among others. It also shows the failure of the assembly to conduct project completion evaluation and to assess the impact of completed projects on communities.
The Assembly should strictly adhere to the provisions in the PPA in constituting members for the District Tender Com mittee and Evaluation Panel. Bid advertisements and technical evaluation of bids should be done in accordance with the PPA guidelines. The Assembly should ensure that project specific monitoring and supervision are carried out and reported on to ensure that contractors execute projects according to specification and schedule. The Assembly should seek the necessary approvals before carrying out variation works as prescribed in the Public Procurement Act.
