Participation in meetings of Public Investment Committee of Parliament
Arising from its mandate of providing inspectorate services to state corporations, the Office of Inspector General is represented in all Public Investment Committee (PIC) meetings. In the period of July to October 2015, ten (10) State Corporations were scheduled to appear before the Committee. The main item of deliberation was Annual reports by Auditor General. Reports with no issues are usually considered as unqualified/clean audited report while those with specific issues that need attention of PIC are considered as qualified audited report. It is these qualified report that management and Boards are required to explain to PIC where the necessary guidance or directives are issued.
In some cases state corporations can be summoned by PIC to respond to issues of public interest reported by oversight authorities, or appearing in the media.
