Auditor General, Leigh Trotman's voice has been one in the wilderness.

2015 Auditor General’s Report – An Exercise in Repetition

Barbados Auditor General Report 2014

Barbados Auditor General Report 2014

Reading the Auditor General’s Reports through the years there is a common theme, one of repetition. It bears highlighting that successive governments have felt the wrath of the AG Mr. Leigh Trotman. The latest 2015 Auditor General Report lays bare the same old same old government department breaches we have become accustomed.

A single BU observation to add to the many can be found on p.29 2.38 as follows:

Among the agencies which did not submit information as requested were a number large entities such as:
  • Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC)
  • Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI)
  • National Housing Corporatio (NHC)
  • Sanitation Service Authority (SSA)

The BIDC is currently embroiled in a dispute with the BWU regarding its decision to force 60 year old employees to retire. There is therefore a healthy assumption by BU that the information requested should be readily available given that this government agency is in downsizing mode. Does any entity retrench employees without completing comprehensive financials to inform the decision?

The BTMI was recently established for crissakes. Why should Barbadians be asked to praise the work of the BTMI as a result of increasing arrival numbers yet poor administration results in dishonorable mention by the AG?

The political interference at the NHC forced a Permanent Secretary to retire. Also the Pubic Accounts Committee (PAC) rules were amended because this is the statutory corporation

Last but surely not least the SSA, not one truck until the AG investigates Cahill Energy!

    What is extremely galling is that the Prime Minister and all the politians, DPP Leacock and police all know that what Cow, Bizzy, Harris, Parris, Maloney, Bjerkham, Tempro et al have been and are doing in Barbados, all the corruption, money laundering etc,
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Steupsss… you are beginning to sound like David (BU) now.

    Yuh mean it is not OBVIOUS that the PM and all the politicians, DPP Leacock and police are all owned lock, stock and barrel by these albino-centric crooks? Expecting any kind of salvation to come from these sources is like waiting for a revolt within ISIS to solve the problem of international terror.

    We have been taken over by organised crime…plain and simple.
    When the Commissioner of Police can decide to invite Bizzy Williams to address new recruits in law enforcement, that is a CLEAR sign that this gang has now dispensed with the vaseline as they continue their attack on our rear….

    What is EXTREMELY galling …is that Bajans can continue to take such a level of assault on our asses – now without vaseline – and only look forward to Kadooment….

    Whatever shiite befalls us as a people, will be fully and truly deserved.

    You and Bush Tea just envious of Bizzy Willie. LoL!!

    Imagine the man is so convincingly sure of his absolute control over the black politicians queuing up to be in his pockets of bribery he can cockily talk about putting the Bill in his underpants.
    The man has already admitted to making illegal ‘donations’ to both corruptible arms of the political class.
    Why don’t you think the man is bold enough to try it on with the police force?
    Why would he try next? The judiciary?

    In which other country other than those with banana republic status would a businessman known for his ‘shady’ dealings be able to make contributions towards the training and improvement of the country’s police force constitutionally empowered to protect and serve all and sundry without fear or ‘favour’ or bias? Isn’t that equivalent to the mafia or drug lords making similar contributions?

    If Bizzy wants to be a true Roman Catholic of penance let him make his taxpayers’ extracted lucre for donations to the crumbling Anglican Church, the QEH, the poorly funded primary school system which helps to instill and distill the character of the child and if need be, to the UWI to help fund the tertiary education of a few bright but poor students whose only option under the current administration is one of despair and a life of crime.

    Only in Bim does this level of crap happen. It is said shit floats to the top of salt water.
    It seems Barbados is up to its ‘salty’ eyes in deep doo-doo as far as leadership floats.

    Bizzy taking a salute from the police is a bad precedent, events of this nature are to be kept to the political directorate and governmental senior officials. Its mockery when albino Bizzy with no connection to the political directorate apart from his white shadow moves is placed at the podium. Its a worrying trend whether its parasite Bizzy or Rawle Brancker. They are not officials in government or its agencies, taking the salute is off limits. Bushy Park is where Bizzy can have salutes from his gas wasting petrol head comrades.

    The call to government is to discontinue a practice that can compromise the work of the RBPF. No one is above the law .Bizzy taking the salute may have an officer second guessing how to act if he breaks the law. Respect from the citizenry for law enforcement agencies is threatened when this occurs.

    Racer…exactly, the Police and government cannot get any dumber, I hope, by letting a very unsavory character like Bizzy make a mockery of the police force…what kind of message are they sending to young people….no wonder the young dont like any of them.

    Bizzy and Cow’s only contribution to the island is parasitic at best, no one with respect for the population who possesses morals or ethics, puts a parasite to be representative of respect or leadership on the island….it’s sick.

    Then he bribes the police with money he has been stealing from taxpayers for years. Acting police Griffith has shown himself to be questionable about his decision making skills as it relates to whom he sees as role models for newly trained officers to follow….it’s a disgrace, right up there with that ugly auditor general’s report.

    That’s the problem ewth the black dudes who acquire positions later, they feel as though they owe the Bizzy’s, Harris’…all the known crooks they attended certain high schools with….something, despite knowing these people should be in prison, what kind of halfassed diligence in keeping the society safe is that…when they diligently lock up poor people on the island for any and everything.

    And in both the Advocate and the Sunday Sun today, we are able to now understand why the Sanitation Service Authority is unable to attract anyone of the appropriate caliber to implement and maintain a suitable Preventive Maintenance Program in order to keep a satisfactory number of units in service to maintain the islands garbage collection

    VACANCY
    TRANSPORT SUPERINTENDENT

    JOB PURPOSE
    Providing transport by maintaining motor vehicle fleet.

    QUALIFICATION AND EXPERIENCE
    A Degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent qualification from an accredited institution,with 5 years work experience, OR
    Ten years experience of Supervisory Management in Mechanical Workshop or similar ‘faculty’.

    RENUMERATION
    Salary Scale Z13. ($47,918.85 -$55,339.08)per annum with telephone and travel allowances.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    One common mistake which we seem to be always making in Barbados, is believing that all Mechanical Engineers are throughly versed in the principles of fleet management and preventive maintenance as it relates to motor vehicles.The few Mechanical Engineers I’ve come across in Barbados,working in the automotive field, have all pursued the relevant courses pertaining to Motor Vehicles, after graduating as Mechanical Engineers, which in the United Kingdom would classify them, among others in the field as Road Transport Engineers,a different kettle of fish.
    SALARY;-$48.000 to $55,000 per annum =$4000-$4,600 per month=$1000-$1650 per week
    This is just, in general, what a senior motor mechanic makes at some of the more efficient transport organisations in Barbados, and well below what a typical transport manager is paid at these same organisations.
    So who exactly does the SSA want to attract in such an important position?
