Broh Weary Of Wastage in Govít
Date Uploaded: Dec 03, 2013

MONROVIA, Dec 2 (LINA) – The Director-General of the General Services Agency (GSA) Mary T. Broh, has expressed concern about “wastage” in government, especially under its current vehicle policy.

She said between2008 and 2010 the running cost of government fleet of vehicles soared to about US$29 million annually, covering purchase, insurance, maintenance, drivers and car washers, among other costs.

“Some of this money could be saved and used for health and education,” Broh told the Liberia News Agency at the weekend in Monrovia.

The GSA boss said the Agency was developing a “Fleet Management Policy” to help control government’s expenditure on vehicles, an undertaking whose framework the Cabinet has approved.

Broh said the GSA was now tracking all government real property and vehicles, adding: “We are in a race with time to reclaim all government property, in the wake of private claims of ownership.”

 She said her administration was “rebranding” GSA, and the mission is to let Liberians know that the Agency can save government some money that could be applied to social services in the best interest of the nation.

Broh said efforts were now directed at building a data base and tracking system, managing the government assets, training of staff and refurbishing the Agency’s offices to create conducive working environment.

She said there are plans for GSA to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Internal Affairs Ministry to upgrade all presidential palaces and government guest houses across the country and take over management of these facilities.
