Major changes at Dunn's River Falls following revelation of irregularities

There has been a major shake-up at Dunn's River Falls and Park in St. Ann in the wake of an audit which revealed poor financial management and operational irregularities.
 
A statement Wednesday afternoon from the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) said the first set of changes took effect on January 9 and involved members of the Dunn's River staff at the management, supervisory and senior levels. 
 
The UDC said some staff have separated from the entity while others have been transferred to other attraction sites managed by the Corporation.
 
The State-run entity said the organisational changes made are in line with the UDC's human resource policies, which allow for re-assignment during the due diligence and review process.
 
The UDC said it will make further changes as it continues to assess and address the inefficiencies identified by the independent external audit which it commissioned last year.
 
The recently appointed independent Programme Management Office has also been mandated to oversee the process to drive sustainable change at Dunn's River Falls and other St. Ann Development Company (SADCO) managed entities where issues have been identified.
 
The UDC said the issues will remain above board with full transparency, while it works to implement the recommendations of  the independent audit report without obstructing the ongoing investigations.
 
The audit report, released last month, identified a series of fraud control failures which the auditors said could lead to huge revenue leaks at Dunn's River Falls and Park.
