Public Finance Management Act (PFMA)

Warrants to be issued on cash availability: Ngangan

Secretary Dr Ken Ngangan revealed during the launching of the amended Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) that warranting is now done through the budget management committee.

“Previously we just issued warrants based on the budget.

“Now what we are doing, we are issuing warrants in line with cash availability. So that when we issue warrants and cheques are written, there is cash there to clear the cheque,” he said.

Dr Ngangan said this was one of the basic control measures in the PFMA but was never complied with previously.
