The Audit Office of Guyana is not pleased that in the age of technological advancements, the National Parks Commission incorporates pencil and paper into its accounting system.
The Audit Office flagged this practice as inappropriate during its audit of the 2008 financial statements of the Commission. The financial statements were recently tabled in the National Assembly.
