The Senior Minister has responded to claims by the Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo, that he led the government to pay a private firm Kroll and Associates $1 million for no work done.
Yaw Osafo-Maafo in a letter addressed to the Auditor General dated October 8, 2019, sought to set the record straight on the matter involving the private firm.
He said approval for the request for single-source procurement of professional services was obtained contrary to claims by the Auditor General that he failed to seek approval from the Procurement Authority.
On the accusation that the Senior Minister through the Finance Ministry made full payment of more than ¢1 million to Kroll and Associates with no proof of work done, Mr Osafo-Maafo said “Proofs of work done by Kroll and Associates are contained in their respective reports submitted to the office of the Senior Minister, COCOBOD, Bank of Ghana and Economic and Organized Crime Office(EOCO).
The Consultancy services with Kroll are ongoing and expected to continue for a period of four years”.
