A forensic audit to be done on the finances of government is expected to be completed within the VIP government’s first 100 days
Government is hiring an unspecified firm to conduct the audit.
Speaking at the House of Assembly on Tuesday, Premier Fahie said the “comprehensive forensic audit” will not be exclusive to the territory’s finances but is promised to reveal the “overall status” of the Government of the Virgin Islands.
“This process of assessment will allow us an accurate assessment of where we are so that we can better manage the expectations [of residents] and build a strong foundation on which to build upon as your new government,” the Premier said.
Since Fahie said the audit will be completed within his administration’s first 100 days, the completion date of the process would be around June 2019. Fahie and is ministers were all sworn into office by March 2 but were only sworn into the House of Assembly March 12.
