A TOTAL of 94 separate audits were carried out on government bodies to compile the Financial and Administrative Audit Bureau’s 14th annual report, its chief Hassan Al Jalahma revealed.

He presented the report for 2016-2017 to parliament chairman Ahmed Al Mulla yesterday during a meeting held in the National Assembly Complex in Gudaibiya.

The 628-page report was presented to His Majesty King Hamad last week and His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa on Sunday.

“Our co-operation with parliament has helped improve our work and ensure more transparency in the way matters are handled,” said Mr Al Jalahma.

“Our reports are the window which legislators use to track the executive authorities’ performance to ensure that it follows rules and regulations and monitor whether the public’s money is spent in the right direction.

“We have conducted 94 book auditing missions within establishments and from them 117 reports have been compiled.”
