China NFL Jerseys is likely to be sidelined for the position of Registrar

Reports that current Registrar of the University of Guyana, Dr. Vincent Alexander, is likely to be sidelined for the position of Registrar, were effectively debunked by officials of the university yesterday.Public Relations Officer of the institution, Paulette Paul,Wholesale Jerseys USA, in an invited comment yesterday revealed that at the moment Dr. Alexander is on end-of-contract leave as his contract is set to come to an end in April. The position of Registrar, she said, will be advertised shortly and Alexander like any other qualified individual could apply.Responding to reports that the advertising of the position was unusual as there have been other similar positions that were not advertised, Paul noted that “there will always be innuendos but the fact is that what the University’s Council is doing is the normal procedure.”Another senior official said that the last time that the position of Registrar was advertised was in 2009 which saw Alexander both applying and being appointed to the position. “This is not at all unusual,” the senior official asserted yesterday.However, there are speculations that Alexander’s return as Registrar could be under threat due to his role played in the recent General and Regional Elections as a Commissioner of the Guyana Elections Commission. He is reported to have had a crucial role in detecting an error in the tabulation of the results. Initially, the People’s Progressive Party was given a one-seat majority but this was later reversed and combined opposition was given the edge.Speculations are that Alexander, like Frederick Kissoon,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Store, a columnist attached to this newspaper and a lecturer at the University for 26 years, has been a target for removal from the institution. Kissoon recently had his contract terminated, a decision which was made at the level of the University’s Council. There have been suggestions that the move was strategic and was spearheaded by PPP/C members, who make up the University’s Board, during a recent meeting of the University’s Council.The University in a statement issued yesterday pointed out that the deliberations of its Council meetings are confidential,Cheap Jerseys For Sale, noting recent news items have claimed to report on deliberations of the meeting of the Council held last week Wednesday. “As has happened in the past,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, such statements contain errors of fact,Cheap Jerseys, misguided deductions and information without a context for its evaluation,” the statement added.The Council said that while it did meet last Wednesday, among other matters it considered appointments that had been referred to it by the Appointments Committee as permitted by its statutes. In determining the matters before it, the Council was guided by the university’s normal considerations including the university’s rules on the recruitment of persons over the age of retirement; the academic qualifications of persons recommended for appointment; the academic record and performance details of the recommended persons; the proper instruction of students and the relative value of filling vacancies on a long-term or short-term basis.The Council of the University, according to the statement, “reminds the public that its deliberations are confidential and that the University does not disclose information that is privileged in its relationship with its staff, applicants for employment or other persons being considered for employment.”It was noted too that unofficial reports on deliberations of university committees, including the Council, must therefore be treated with appropriate caution.

To enhance the system used to manage and properly account for billions of taxpayers’ moneys, the formerFormer Minister of Housing, Irfaan Aliregime purchased the Integrated Financial Management and Accounting System (IFMAS) from a Canadian firm. This was some ten years ago.IFMAS, an electronic method of accounting, was intended to replace all manual systems being used by the State. It was felt that the “pencil and paper” system of accounting allowed for too many loopholes for corrupt practices. IFMAS was essentially intended to be a tool for checkmating various forms of financial corruption with taxpayers’ moneys.But after spending $132M to secure the Canadian system of accounting evidence seen by this newspaper shows that Former Minister of Housing, Irfaan Ali was not making use of it.In fact, he allowed the accounts system of the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) to operate in a “pencil and paper” manner. It is something that even continues to this very day.This would appear to be rather suspicious to some persons given Ali’s respected background in finance. At one time,cheap jerseys, he even served in the Ministry of Finance and has on more than one occasion boasted of his knowledge in best practices in accounting.Kaieteur News understands from reliable Government sources that Board Members of the Central Housing and Planning Authority held recently, a meeting to address a number of matters one of which includes the system of accounting at CH&PA. This entity operated as the main arm of what was formerly known as the Housing Ministry.Members of the Board were disappointed in the fact that the accounting system for the Housing AuthorityCH&PA CEO, Myrna Pittwas manual and hoped for provision to be made for the implementation of a structured computerized software package.CH&PA’s former Director of Finance,Cheap NFL Football Jerseys, Taslim Baksh, has disappeared since the May 11,Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys, 2015 General and Regional Elections and the CEO Myrna Pitt never explained his absence to the new board.Baksh was also charged with overseeing the operations of the Scrap Metal Unit, which was tasked with regulating the scrap metal trade.In 2014, this newspaper reported that Government was wasting assets and was not doing enough to prevent fraud in the national accounting system. This came about because the Ministry of Finance failed to implement two of the seven modules it had acquired for the Integrated Financial Management Accounting System.The two modules that are not being used are the Purchasing Module and the Assets Inventory Module.A senior officer of the Canadian company that designed the IFMAS said that he is unaware of any case where a government bought the system and did not use all of the modules.Doug Hadden, Vice President of Sales, said that while Governments are treated with a sense of privacy, he would advise that all the modules be used.Asked whether the system was designed for mature or small environments,Cheap Jerseys, he said it was designed for “the immature to the very mature”. “We have implemented this system in countries with a far less mature environment than Guyana has.”Hadden said that when it comes to the management of taxpayers’ dollars,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Outlet, accountability is of absolute importance. He said that it has been proven that manual systems which are in place to ensure accountability can be flawed and beaten.CH&PA’s former Director of Finance, Taslim BakshTo help ensure transparency and liability,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, his company designed the computerized accounting system, IFMAS, which covers how taxpayers’ money is budgeted and spent by the government.He said that at this point the system is designed exclusively for governments and is implemented throughout the world.He said that the modules provide better control over what was spent, how it was spent, who is assigned to the asset acquired and what has become of its value.He stressed that all the modules are important and should be implemented.While the Government of Guyana has refused to implement the other two modules, Hadden says that it may very well be the case that the modules were implemented in a manner that suits the “priorities of the government.”Hadden reiterated, “The whole purpose of the IFMAS is to replace manual systems with automation for accountability and transparency.”The current administration is in the process of evaluating how it is going to proceed with the IFMAS programme.
