A new monitoring unit within the Ministry of Finance plans to decrease the number of incomplete projects.

Appearing before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) yesterday, Ministry representatives confirmed the unit’s creation was in response to concerns by the Auditor-General.

The Ministry of Finance Team said the initiative was part of their response to the 29 systematic issues that had repeatedly been raised by the A-G’s office from year 2007-2009.

MOF, Principal Auditor Emosi Dovibua said there were repeated examples of infrastructure projects being incomplete, or nonexistent despite full payments being made including essential infrastructure like airports and ports.

Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chairperson, Biman Prasad said that the committee wanted oversight on the continuing projects.
