States ‘are still wasting money’

Post by GD on Wed 15 Dec 2010, 7:23 pm


LESS than a week after across-the-board tax rises were approved by politicians, a report has found that there are still serious problems with financial management in the States.
The latest report from the Public Accounts Committee has again raised concerns about the way in which the States manages its money, citing a lack of accountability and central authority and a lack of powers for senior civil servants.
Committee chairman Senator Ben Shenton said that after five years of ministerial government, the committee still had concerns about a lack of accountability and departments operating ‘in silos’. (from JEP)
