Summary of Findings
The Lawra District Assembly scored 68 per cent in the overall assessment of its performance, based on the GAS audit findings. Strengths: The Assembly showed a strong performance inproject planning and implementation, especially in involving communities and other stakeholders to identify projects and in evaluating bids and award ing contracts. Weaknesses: The audit, however, revealed gaps in how the Assembly procures and engages contractors, monitors and supervises the execution of projects and makes payments to contractors. It also shows the failure of the assembly to conduct project completion evaluation.
Recommendations Bid advertisements should be published in at least two newspapers as required by the Public Procurement Manual. All activities relating to the tendering processes should be documented. The Assembly should conduct regular monitoring and super- vision of projects and keep documentation of such activities. All PVs should be vetted by the Internal Audit Unit before payments are made. Conduct detailed checks on the contractors’ valuation of work performed before PVs are raised and payment effected.
