KINGSTON, Jamaica — A performance audit of the Education, Youth and Information Ministry by the Auditor General's Department (AGD) is to be completed by next month.

The scope of the audit, which can be found on the AGD's website, said it will provide an indication as to whether the selected public entities procurement and contracts management activities were conducted to attain value for money (which encompasses the achievement of economy, efficiency and effectiveness).

The audit will also seek to assess compliance with applicable procurement guidelines at the ministry.

The AGD said that in scoping the study, it has considered carefully how the audit will contribute to its wider strategic aims to promote improvements in the use of public funds through better governance and resource management.

The results of the audit will come on the heels of the resignation of Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid this morning.
