Supreme Audit Office finds irregularities in Transport Ministry’s finances

The Supreme Audit Office has uncovered irregularities in the financing of the Transport Ministry. According to the results of an audit published on Monday, the ministry squandered close to 88 million crowns on dubious and unnecessary projects. The report states as a case in point two contracts for outsourcing services for “advice on cosmic activities” for which the ministry paid close to six million crowns. The Waterways Management Directorate overstepped the mark in all areas audited and an excessive amount of money was reportedly squandered on PR goods.
