GRA-SML: Presidency Denies MFWA Full KPMG Audit Report



The office of the president has denied the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) request for the full KPMG audit report applied through the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

The application was geared towards the audit report on the revenue assurance contract between Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and Strategic Mobilisation Ghana Limited (SML).

According to the presidency’s response to MFWA on its application of the KPMG report, they stated that such information will compromise the integrity of the deliberative process hence the denial.

“Upon careful consideration and in accordance with sections 5 (1) (a) and (b) (i) of the RTI Act, I regret to inform you that your request has been refused. Section 5 (1) (a) and (b) (i) states that information prepared for or submitted to the President or Vice President containing opinions, advice, deliberations, recommendations, minutes, or consultations, is exempt from disclosure and that disclosure of such information would compromise the integrity of the deliberative process by revealing the thought process, considerations, and influence on decision-making reserved for the highest offices of the land.”

The presidency stated that the findings and recommendations have been detailed in a press statement issued on 24th April, 2024 urging that “…the public remains informed while respecting the statutory restrictions on specific disclosures”.
