A seminar that was organised by the Federal Ethics & Anti-Corruption Commission (FEACC) about the exposure of property management for maladministration and corruption was held on May 16, 2014.
The seminar was started by the opening speech of Wedo Axo, deputy commissioner of the FEACC, and followed by a presentation of a research paper on the exposure of property management for maladministration and corruption.
The report identified 12 governmental institutions that are exposed to wastage of resources which are mainly caused by mismanagement of properties, extravagancy of purchased items and the growing corruption in the institutions.
The main institutions that are identified with having a gap in the area of property management and maladministration include the Ethiopian Revenue and Customs Authority (ERCA), Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation (EEPCo), Addis Abeba City Roads Authority (AACRA), ethio telecom and the Addis Abeba Water and Sewerage Authority (AAWSA).
As a solution, the paper suggested strict control and follow-up on the purchasing process in these government institutions.
