No govt payments after Dec 12

Finance Secretary Dr Ken Ngangan urges all government invoices and payments to be settled before the government accounts close in December.

Dr Ngangan said government accounts will be closed on 12 December; no payments will be made by the Finance Department.     

He warned all government departments and statutory organisations to follow the Finance Department circulars because no unsettled warrants will be made after the closure of the accounts.

This is so the 2016 audit can be done in preparation for the 2017 financial year.      

The government accounts will be opened in the first week of Janaury.
