See ASF anomaly in the use of scholarship resources

Eight state representations of the National Coordination of Becas para el Bienestar Benito Juárez (CNBBBJ) used resources from the budget items for the leasing of buildings and premises, as well as fuels, lubricants and vehicle additives destined for public services for activities that are not available related to what is established in the program’s operating rules.

According to the audit report of the Superior Audit of the Federation (ASF), Chiapas, Mexico City, Hidalgo, Jalisco, State of Mexico, Oaxaca, Puebla and Veracruz did not verify the exercise of spending of 311 thousand 342.72 pesos with respect to the fuel item.

However, on January 5, on the occasion of the meeting to present the final results and preliminary observations, the coordination provided information and documentation to clarify the observation; However, despite the fact that it was found that the CNBBBJ sent the accounting assistants for fuel from the states involved, the supporting data to prove the refunds made was not provided, therefore the indication persists.

In this sense, the ASF issued a promotion of disciplinary administrative responsibility so that the internal control body in the National Coordination of Scholarships, or its equivalent, carry out the pertinent investigations and, where appropriate, initiate the corresponding procedure for the irregularities committed by part of public servants.

The above, since they authorized payments to the state representations, which covered with recourse the items of leasing of buildings and premises and fuels through a charge to the budget scheme S072 Prospera Program of Social Inclusion, Branch 20, for activities that are not found related to what is established in the operating rules.
