Audit Service constructs 19 offices nationwide

The €24.5-million project is being financed with a concessionary loan from the German government through its KfW Development Bank.

The project is being executed in two phases and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

When completed, each of the Audit Service office projects will have ancillary facilities such as executive offices, reception, meeting rooms, seminar/training/workshop rooms, achievers room, storage room.

There will also be break room, server room, guard room, kitchen, places of convenience for persons with disability and general offices.

Three of the offices will be built in the Eastern, Volta and Central regions, while the 16 others will be put up in the districts, including Asankragua, Twifo Praso, Half Assini, Dodowa, Koforidua, Asamankese, Kpando, Offinso, Atebubu, Apam, Axim and Enchi.

The rest are Tepa, Kintampo, Bibiani, Kumasi Effiduase, Bole, Wenchi, Navorongo, Cape Coast and Ho.


A sod-cutting ceremony was held at Effiduase-Koforidua recently for work to start on the Koforidua Regional Office project to signal the start of the project.

The Auditor-General, Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu, said the construction of the offices had come at the appropriate time because the staff of the service had been facing serious accommodation challenges.

According to him, the Audit Service had 275 administrative districts out of which the Audit Service had offices in only 76 districts, describing it as woefully inadequate.

Mr Asiedu said the Audit Service was, therefore, no where near one-third coverage in the districts.
