The Public Accounts Committee sought to establish the extent to which Harare City Council had addressed audit observations made in the 2020 Auditor-General’s Report by implementing recommendations made by the Auditor-General.

Committee Recommendations

-Harare City Council should by 31 January, 2023 engage Quill and reinstall BIQ so that the bank reconciliations could be done and also that US$189 255 035 unverified funds could be substantiated by the Auditor General.

-ZACC should by 28 February, 2023, probe Harare City Tender Committee on why they were getting the expenses of their international meetings paid by bidders against Section 84 (2) of Procurement Regulations Act.


      The Committee expressed dismay on how and why a big council such as Harare City is being run without a functioning Enterprise Resource Planning System.  In this respect, the Committee urgently expects city officials to hastily re-engage Quill Associates for BIQ system to recover funds unaccounted for, restore sanity, transparency and efficiency to avoid continued financial hemorrhage in the city’s operations.
