Permanent Secretaries in Fiji will be held accountable if they fail to attend to Public Accounts Committee queries.

The committee had recently expressed their disappointment with the lack of effort by the heads of ministries and departments to answer their queries.

Public Service Commission Permanent Secretary Parmesh Chand said permanent secretaries and heads of departments are chief accounting officers for their respective ministries and departments.  

“They clearly know of their responsibility to attend to queries and interviews requested by the Public Accounts Committee,” said Chand.

Chand said it is part of their deliverables and they are to be held accountable if they are failing in this area.

The public accounts committee is chaired by Manu Korovulavula and its members include Taufa Vakatale, Matiasi Kotobalavu, Adi Laufitu Malani, Alekisio Sala and Aseri Radrodro.

The committee looks into audited reports provided by the Auditor General’s Office.
