Context/Observation

All outstanding payments claimed in respect of these three (3) services had been made through PV No 105855 dated 8th June, 2017 as at the time of this audit exercise.
However, the following observations were made: The basis of arriving at the above fee cannot be established because it was not in compliance with the Federal Ministry of Works rate of fees payable to consultants in the construction industry 1996. The Number of staff as well as their category, years of experience, man-hourly rate as well as the total cost were not stated. The reimbursable expenses associated with this cannot be established during the audit exercise.
It was also observed in most cases that certificates issued by the above mentioned consultants did not reflect professionalism and competence as they did not show percentage of completion or narration of actual work done as regards each IPC raised by them.

Risks
Risk of unsubstantiated payments: There is a risk of payments not being backed up by evidence of work done or goods supplied if fees are paid without basis of how such fees were earned.
Payment for job not executed.

Recommendation
It is therefore recommended that the basis of arriving at the above fees claimed in line with Scale of Fees payable to consultants in the construction industry should be forwarded to the Office of the Auditor-General for Federation for audit scrutiny.
