Advocacy results: Parliament uses WAJIBU's PFA recommendations to oversee the Government

The Parliament uses WAJIBU's PFA recommendations for instance its directive to the government to revise the Public Audit Act of 2008 in order to reduce the time for publishing audit reports of the Government Accounts from 9 to 6 months. The parliament directed the government through the Ministry of Finance to reduce the time of closing the financial accounts to no more than a month from the end of the government's fiscal year which is June 30th.

This will help the Parliamentary Oversight Committees to obtain and review audit observations and recommendations earlier and for a longer period of time unlike the current situation whereby such information is obtained 9 months after the end of the government's fiscal year. The other advantage of reducing time for publishing audit reports is that the CAG's reports will have an input in the country's immediate budgeting processes. Some of the parliamentary Hansard to evidence the result is provided hereunder;
