All MPs must submit their PSIP, DSIP and LLGSIP’s acquittals to Department of Implementation and Rural Development, and not direct to Finance Department.
This was announced by Alotau MP and National Planning Minister, Charles Abel, when presenting his district’s acquittals today.
Minister Abel urged all MPs to follow the right administrative process of acquitting reports, rather than taking shortcuts.
Minister Abel said MPs presenting their District Services Improvement Program funds directly to Finance Department, were not following the right administrative process.
He said the right way to do this, is for MPs to present their DSIPs and PSIPs to Department of Implementation and Rural Development first.
This Department will than submit the reports to Finance Department for funding, after proper screening was done.
Minister Abel has set example by presenting his DSIP and District Services Grant to Department of Implementation and Rural Development Acting Secretary, Paul Sai’i today.
Mr Sai’i said Minister Abel has followed the proper process by presenting acquittals to his office, rather than presenting directly to the Finance office.
During this presentation, Minister Able also warn all MPs and their JDP members, not to award contracts to anyone as this is not their role.
