Chamber of Accounts complains that the NGOs do not provide complete information
SD. The Chamber of Accounts complained that less than 12% of the Non-Profit Associations that received funds from the state have delivered their reports on the complete budgetary execution so far this year.
An analysis carried out by the institution revealed that the NGOs handle more than RD$1.5 billion a year from the state, and that the 897 of these associations included in the Budget of Income and the Law of Public Expenditures, only 104 reported their budgetary performance completely, which represents just 11.5%.
In the meantime, some 322 handed in partial or incomplete information, bringing the total to 426 reports received.
The supervisory agency indicated that for this period they should have received 3,588 reports of budgetary execution from the Non-Profits; nonetheless, they have only received 1,322, which is equal to 36.9% of the total that should have been received.
They said that the 897 Non-Profits receive funds through 13 Ministries among which are Education, Public Health, Labor, Agriculture, the Presidency, Sports, Public Works, Industry and Commerce, Women, Culture, Youth, Higher Education and Environment.
Last year, the Central Government transferred to the Non-Profits RD$2.3 billion, some RD$348.8 more than was budgeted for them. It was reported that the global amount assigned for the Non-Profits is RD$1.5 billion which represents an increase of RD$67.3 million more than in 2013.
The increase was basically obtained by Public Health with 6% increase.
