Summary of Findings
The Jomoro District Assembly scored 56 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 involved communities and other stakeholders in selecting the projects. Weaknesses: The audit revealed some gaps in how the Assembly procured and engaged contractors, monitored and supervised the execution of the projects, made payments to the contractors, among others. It also showed some delays in the completion of one of the projects, thus denying the community of the intended benefits.
Recommendations The Procurement Unit should update the procurement process and submit the plans to the ETC for review and approval to enhance decision making. The assembly should provide drawings for projects during the tender process to allow tenderers pre pare competitive tenders. The engineers should record observations and instructions in their diaries and site instruction books during supervision. Develop a monitoring schedule to track the progress of works. The Assembly should ensure that projects are completed on time and liaise with user institutions to assess the impact of completed projects.
