COPA starts online method to observe state institutions Featured

The Committee on Public Accounts (COPA) has started using an online method to monitor activities of 843 state ministries, departments, corporations and statutory boards.

Previously, it had to depend on observation reports of the Auditor General’s Department.

Observation reports for 2015 and 2016 have been prepared under the new method, implemented on a suggestion by president Maithripala Sirisena.

A COPA spokesman said the new method helped observe fraud, corruption or irregularities speedily.

Under this method, each state institution is given marks by a committee appointed by the Department.

President Sirisena will be the chief guest at a ceremony at the parliamentary complex tomorrow (13) to present awards to the eight best state institutions chosen under this method for the past two years.
