98 state Agencies fail to submit audit reports



The Internal Audit Agency (IAA) has published a long list of covered entities who have defaulted in submitting their reports and plans.


According to the agency, the entities defaulted from Thursday, 31 December 2020.

Section 16 (3) of the Internal Audit Agency Act and Section 83 of the Public Financial Management Act 2016 (Act 921) requires covered entities to periodically submit various reports and plans to the agency as an assurance that control systems in Covered Entities are working.


Fifty-one entities did not submit their Quarterly Internal Audit Reports while 47 entities did not submit their Annual Internal Audit Plans.


The IAA has, therefore, advised affected Covered Entities to “submit the required reports to the Agency not later than 28th February 2021.


“Failure which appropriate actions required by the Public Financial Management (PFM) laws of Ghana shall be taken against them.”
