SAO: Colleges wasting money and the Ministry is unable to control


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Inspection of the Supreme Audit Office (SAO) focused on the conditions of obtaining grants for universities. Checks have figured out that colleges treat money inefficiently and the Ministry of Education can not freely set the conditions for projects to watch, this follows from the SAO report published Monday.

For example, the Ministry did not require grant applicants to include in their investment plans evaluate the effectiveness of the investment. The resort is practically deprived of the opportunity to re-evaluate whether the available resources are spent effectively. Supported, for example, the purchase of two buildings at the Charles University in Prague Opletalova for 372.5 million crowns. These buildings while at the time of completion of the inspection were already a year and a half empty.

SAO checked 14 investment projects for which beneficiaries received a total of 4.4 billion crowns. Revealed deficiencies in five of them. Recipients of mistakes in the early stages of project preparation and procurement. For example, Palacky University in Olomouc (UPOL) due to errors in the specification built a new pavilion Faculty Envelopa about three years longer than planned and the construction budget has climbed to double, ie a billion crowns. UPOL also broke the law when he commissioned more work to contractors in negotiated procedure without publication, although their volume exceeded the statutory limit of 20 percent of the original contract.

Planned budgets have failed to abide by the VSB Technical University of Ostrava.The Technology Pavilion CPIT expenditures exceeded the original budget by 24.7 percent, in large auditoriums Pavilion FAST then by 46.5 percent.

The Ministry of Education also most investment projects participants are committed to the assets acquired from subsidies will at least for a certain period of time used for the purpose for which the aid received. Likewise, they did not ban convert subsidized property to someone else, and committed to the property for a specified period of time to operate properly.

"The Ministry appointed specific errors have also found, but at the time of detection of these problems have been exhausted so large volume of money that the Ministry of Education decided to increase state funding so that projects could not finish," responds resort to the report, with the most audited projects have been awarded in the years 2004 to 2006.The Ministry of Education also prevents the original documentation programs were formed under conditions that were from the Ministry of Finance complicated and confusing.

SAO sighted controls in their particular two programs aimed at the development and renewal of the material and technical base of public universities. In the period 2003-2011 the program was more than 19 billion crowns from the state budget was 17 billion. One of the programs reviewed was extended to six years, with an increase in funding by 43.4 percent, the second five years, and even increase by 71.2 percent.

"Ministry inadequately controlled implementation of actions from both programs. Audit of economy, efficiency and effectiveness of subsidies is addressed. Ministry and acted strictly in accordance with the Act on Financial Control," the report SAO.
