PPRA has referred three World Bank financed water projects in the district councils of Rombo, Pangani and Bukombe to the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) for investigation after audit results showed they exhibited a high likelihood of corruption, TPJ has learnt.


This has been revealed by the 2016/17 PPRA Annual Performance Evaluation Report which was released in Dodoma recently.
According to the report, PPRA’s value for money audit covered 26 selected local government authorities (LGAs), namely munipal councils of Songea, Lindi, Bukoba and Sumbawanga as well as district councils of Kondoa, Bahi, Kibaha, Lindi, Handeni, Pangani, Moshi, Rombo, Mbozi, Mbarali, Geita, Bukombe, Nyang’hwale, Liwale, Ruangwa, Buhigwe, Mafia, Mkuranga and Uvinza. Others were town councils of Kibaha, Njombe and Geita.
The report says the audit assessed both the level of corruption likelihood in the World Bank funded projects implemented from financial year 2012/13 to 2015/16 and determined whether both tendering and implementation stages complied with the public procurement law.
“The assessment indicated that the water projects at three LGAs, namely Rombo DC, Pangani DC and Bukombe DC exhibited a high likelihood of corruption and were therefore submitted to PCCB for further investigation,” the report reads in part.
A total of 29 water projects worth 21.53 billon/- were reviewed including eight gravity flow schemes projects worth 10.32 billion/- piped – pumped schemes projects worth 11.04 billion/- and two deep-well projects worth 163.91 million/-.
According to the report, fraud and corruption in public procurement were addressed in accordance with the agreement between PPRA and PCCB, which requires the Authority to send to the anti-corruption body reports that identify institutions with a high likelihood of corruption.
The report makes it clear, however, that while indication of a high likelihood of corruption is not in itself evidence of corruption in a particular procurement; it raises sufficient interest in investigating further.
For the cited projects, the performance level in general was satisfactory on all three selected technologies. However, gravity flow scheme projects scored poorly when it came to project completion and closure.
