COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Audit Services Trade Unions noted that a large number of issues have arisen due to the delay in passing the Audit Services constitution. Chairman of the Sri Lanka Audit Service Officer’s Association, G.M.M. Kumarasinghe said that the officers are frustrated due to the current situation.

The draft bill of the audit commission which was delayed on several occasions was finally passed in parliament on August 1st, 2018. Kumarasinghe highlighted that although it has been five months since the day the bill was passed that the relevant state institutions continue to delay the Audit Services constitution.

When News 1st made inquiries from the Auditor General Gamini Wijesinghe he said that the drafted audit services constitution was submitted to the salaries and cadre commission adding that it is the commission who had not taken immediate action to prepare the constitution.

Further, AG Gamini Wijesuriya noted that the President’s Secretary appointed a five-member committee to take future decisions in relation to this issue. The committee will work towards expediting the process that was delayed.
