Auditor General Pamela Monroe Ellis and Everald Warmington
Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke is to table an Audit Report on the Auditor General's Department in the House of Representatives Tuesday afternoon.
Earlier this year, Everald Warmington, Member of Parliament for St. Catherine South Western, demanded an audit of the Auditor General's Department, saying it continues to benefit from the public purse without providing audited financials.
Auditor General Pamela Monroe Ellis has said the Department should be audited not because it is critical of other government bodies but because it is the right thing to do.
Addressing Parliament's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Tuesday morning, Mrs Monroe Ellis revealed that she has raised questions about reports not being submitted to Parliament. However, said she was advised that the reports for the last two years will be submitted today.
But Mr. Warmington has taken issue that only two reports on the Auditor General's Department will be tabled.
"I will not, today, accept any two year report... You can't pick up an audit in the middle of a period or the end of a period without you audit the beginning of the period. So laying an audit here that is under 10 years make no sense," he asserted.
