MCAs want audit on revenue status

MCAs want audit on revenue status
Ward representatives have faulted the county government finance department for failure to automate the revenue collection system.

The MCAs claimed this had seen the county perennially fail to achieve annual revenue targets.

A Public Accounts and Investment Committee report on the Auditor-General report for the financial year ending June 30, 2018, shows the county government has not automated its revenue collection system in all of its internally generated revenue sources. These include single business permits and market dues, which may result in risk of under-banking of revenue.

The MCAs now want the Auditor General to conduct a special audit on the county.

"The special audit should be specific to the status of automation of revenue in the county, including but not limited to the processes, procedures and plans so far undertaken towards the automation of revenue in relation to the annual budgetary allocations on the same and the value for money so far spent on the matter," read the report tabled by MCA Susan Okwiri of West Gem.
