Nauru sorting its audit delays

6:49 am on 12 June 2017

The Nauru government has blamed long delays for completed public audits on a lack of qualified staff.

The Department of Audit just tabled the public accounts from 2013/2014 in parliament.

The move had been hailed by the Nauru government as a sign of its commitment to transparency and accountability.

The department was being helped by the Pacific Association of Supreme Audit Institutions and the delayed audit report for 2014/2015 would now get to parliament in September.

The 2015/2016 report would be completed by December 2017.
