Previous attempts to audit UG’s finances faced staunch resistance – auditor

first_imgThe announcement that an audit will be conducted into the University of Guyana is a welcome one for anti-corruption advocate Christopher Ram, who noted that in the past, staunch efforts were made to prevent scrutiny.Anti-corruption advocate, Christopher RamRam, who was on the university’s audit committee, related in an interview with this publication that the University of Guyana’s administration did much to stave off scrutiny of their finances from both external auditors and the audit committee.“I headed the internal audit committee of the University of Guyana council. And obstacles were put at just about every point in the process to ensure that nothing was done. And money was spent without any authority and accountability,” Ram told this publication.According to Ram, this has been the situation for years and he expressed doubt about the last time the University had been subject to an audit. But the accountant made it clear that the time was now.It was recently revealed that the Education Ministry had requested the Office of the Auditor General to conduct a special audit of the University of Guyana’s finances.In February, a group of employees attached to the University of Guyana’s Turkeyen Campus had picketed the Vice-Chancellery, calling for audits into the spending of the University as it is allegedly unable to properly account for its expenditures and more so, offer a salary increase to its staffers, although tuition fees have been increasing annually.The University of GuyanaIn a release to the media, UG Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw Griffith had revealed that the Ministry of Education, in a recent letter, advised of a request made to the Auditor General’s Office for a special audit. Notwithstanding the Union’s gripe with his administration, Griffith claimed to welcome the move for an audit into UG’s finances.“The administration welcomes the opportunity to clear the air on the allegations and assertions by the Unions and other individuals…We have long indicated such, both directly to the UG Unions and in my two recent memoranda to the University community,” he said.UG’s administration was accused of wanton spending, including hosting several events and standing the expenses of meals and accommodation for guest speakers as well as hiring select individuals and paying them super salaries, and sending large delegations overseas, all on the University’s bill. Professor Griffith has consistently denied those claims.The University of Guyana Senior Staff Association (UGSSA) and University of Guyana Workers Union (UGWU) have in particular levelled these accusations. The Unions had joined forces to question why monies were allocated in previous budgets to entities which do not exist and moreover, what became of those funds.They had also demanded answers from the administration on how much money was spent on non-essential events in the last two and half years, which include but are not limited to the Law and Society series, the Turkeyen-Tain talks, and the Vice-Chancellor’s installation ceremony.They had argued that while these monies were being spent, the core units of the University, which include faculties and schools, had been informed that no money is available for essential repairs and payment for stationery, among others.In his 2016 report, Auditor General Deodat Sharma had found that $209 million has been unaccounted for from the University of Guyana’s Science and Technology Support Project, funded by the Government of Guyana (GoG) and the International Development Association (IDA) under Credit Agreement No 4969-GY.However, the University had insisted that the monies were used for infrastructure projects on the campus, including a fibre optic cable to provide students with Wi-Fi. It had also noted that some of the monies were used to renovate the faculty buildings.last_img read more

City seeks parking report before approving mall

first_imgThe city will also re-evaluate a “neighborhood impact fee” originally set at $30,000, Harbicht said. Although city staff recommended approval of the project, which the council will likely confer after approving the parking plan, traffic anxiety and pent-up frustrations over Westfield’s battle with developer Caruso Affiliated made for a tense exchange at Tuesday’s meeting. Westfield spokeswoman Katey Dickey said the company would comply with the request and was looking forward to coming back before the council. Westfield America President Ken Wong was traveling and couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday, one day after taking his lumps from the council with a smile. “After we finally got done with all the questions, I scolded Westfield Corp. for the fact they’ve been a terrible corporate citizen and are trying everything they can to tear this community apart,” Harbicht said. Notwithstanding that, Harbicht said he told Wong “I love your proposal and I think it will be great for the city.” The 100,000-square-foot expansion will add premium retailers in an outdoor setting above two levels of parking. Westfield’s expansion should return to the council some time in the next 30 days. Caruso’s proposal for The Shops at Santa Anita adjacent to Westfield’s mall goes before the council for consideration at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Arcadia Masonic Center, 50 W. Duarte Road. Assistant City Manager Don Penman said he didn’t expect a vote to happen that night based on the amount of public speakers anticipated. To avoid a repeat of the Planning Commission’s meeting earlier this month, where project opponents felt they were unfairly required to wait to speak, the council also voted to have its clerk “shuffle” the speaker cards before they were called. “It didn’t look right,” said Councilman Peter Amundson, adding that the city would have to “go overboard” to “appear above board.” todd.ruiz@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4444 www.insidesocal.com/pasadenapolitics160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

After strongly criticizing the mall owner, council members late Tuesday night attached one more condition before it would approve construction of a proposed expansion dubbed The Promenade. “When they opened the first phase of their expansion, the biggest complaint we heard was about their parking,” Councilman Bob Harbicht said Wednesday, referring to the mall’s first phase of expansion, which opened in 2004. By the end of the meeting, Westfield agreed to submit specific plans for accommodating the loss of parking during the project’s construction, which based on its estimate for the city is between 600 and 800 spaces. last_img read more

Northeast B.C. nurses join fight against patient care model changes

first_img“These care aides are an integral part of health care, in the appropriate place,” Hannah Embree says. “Long-term care, stable patients like to see the same person every day, good routine. It’s not the appropriate place for an unlicensed care professionals to be at the bedside of an acutely ill patient.” Officials from Island Health have said the change is intended to give nurses more time for patient care, but Embree argues patients could get sicker and cost the province more money long-term. She also argues the patient care model could make its way to northern B.C. To read the full article from HQPrinceGeorge.com, click here.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Iraqi probe finds Blackwater shooting toll higher, no provocation

first_imgThe Associated Press reported Thursday that the Iraqi panel’s recommendations also would include that the company compensate the victims. The Iraqi panel is one of at least three investigations involving Americans. The joint U.S.-Iraqi commission also met for the first time Sunday to review American security operations after the shooting. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has also dispatched a team to Baghdad, and retired veteran diplomat Stapleton Roy is leading a diplomatic review, along with a former State Department and intelligence official, Eric Boswell. The panel, led by Patrick Kennedy, one of the most senior management experts in the U.S. foreign service, was to present an interim report early this month. The Sept. 16 incident was one of at least six involving deaths allegedly caused by Blackwater that authorities here have brought to the attention of the Americans. The joint commission exchanged opinions about the shootings and agreed on a need to establish a direct mechanism for sharing information and to review several issues related to U.S. security operations, embassy spokeswoman Mirembe Nantongo said. The panel chaired by the Iraqi defense minister and U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission, Patricia A. Butenis, also expressed “mutual commitment of the Iraqi government and the U.S. government to work together to evaluate issues of safety and security related to personal security detail operations in Iraq,” according to a brief statement. The joint commission is expected to issue recommendations to both Baghdad and Washington on improving Iraqi and U.S. security procedures, with the “goal of ensuring that personal security detail operations do not endanger public safety” and prevent similar incidents in the future. Across the Iraqi capital, bombings killed at least nine Iraqis in three separate attacks, including one near Iran’s embassy, police said. The attacks started with an early morning explosion near a minibus carrying workers into central Baghdad. Three people were killed in the roadside bombing, which apparently targeted a police patrol, according to a police official who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The inside of the mangled minibus was soaked in blood, the metal hulk was pummeled by shrapnel and the windows were shattered, AP Television News footage showed. A half-hour later, in the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Dora in southern Baghdad, a second roadside bomb targeting a U.S. patrol missed its target, killing three Iraqi civilians, police said. And in the downtown commercial area of Salihiyah, a bomb planted in the back of a car parked near the Iranian Embassy exploded about 8:30 a.m., killing three Iraqi passers-by, according to police.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BAGHDAD – An official Iraqi investigation into a deadly shooting involving Blackwater USA security guards raised the number of Iraqis killed to 17 and found the gunfire was unwarranted, the government said Sunday. It also said the shootings amounted to a deliberate crime and recommended those involved face trial. The Blackwater guards are accused of opening fire on Iraqi civilians in a main square in Baghdad on Sept. 16. They claimed they came under fire first. The Iraqi investigative committee, which was ordered by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, found that convoys from the Moyock, N.C.-based security company did not come under direct or indirect fire before the men shot up the intersection. “It was not hit even by a stone,” government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said in a statement.

The three-member Iraqi panel led by Defense Minister Abdul-Qader al-Obeidi determined that Blackwater guards sprayed western Baghdad’s Nisoor Square with gunfire without provocation. The panel raised the casualty toll to 17 Iraqis killed and 23 wounded, as opposed to the 11 deaths Iraqi officials originally reported. On Thursday, Minister of State for National Security Sherwan al-Waili told The Associated Press that the panel had determined 13 Iraqis had been killed. A parallel but unofficial investigation by the Interior Ministry also put the number at 17. Al-Dabbagh said the Cabinet would weigh the Iraqi findings with those of a joint U.S.-Iraqi commission “and subsequently adopt the legal procedures to hold this company accountable.” last_img read more
