KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 21 2016 : The Auditor General’s Report 2015 Series 2 listed out 247 recommendations to assist federal government, federal statutory bodies and state governments in rectifying and overcoming their shortcomings.

Auditor General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang said 68 of the recommendations were for the federal government; 30, for federal statutory bodies; and 149, for state governments.

“As in the past, the reports had earlier been referred to the department heads concerned for confirmation,” he said in a statement yesterday.

The Auditor General’s Report 2015 Series 2 on federal government, federal statutory bodies and state governments’ activities as well as federal statutory bodies and state governments’ 2015 financial reports was tabled in parliament
today after getting the consent of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah.

Of the audit on 461 government and government agencies’ financial statements last year, 421 have been awarded the Audit Certificate Without Reprimand.

Ambrin said 11 financial statements were given the Audit Report With Emphasis of Matter and 16, the Audit Certificate With Reprimand.

“Six financial reports are still being audited, three have not been confirmed due to late submission and incomplete supporting documents, and four have not been submitted for auditing,” he said.

In the Series 2 Report, 77 performance audits and 19 management audits were carried out on federal, state and federal statutory body companies.

He said the audit covered programme, construction, maintenance, acquisition, revenue management, environment and company management.

Ambrin said the Finance Ministry has produced a Feedback Report on the Auditor-General’s Report 2015 containing comments and actions undertaken by department heads on the issues reported in the Auditor General’s Report.
