Ministry clarifies policy

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, February 08, 2014

GOVERNMENT has about 20 leased vehicles in the Northern Division.

Speaking at the Ministry of Finance awareness tour in the North yesterday, the ministry's principal administration officer Malakai Tueli said the government had entered into lease arrangements with certain suppliers of its vehicles.

Mr Tueli said the Ministry of Finance was responsible for distributing vehicles to the North and West.

"The monetary values for these lease differs but we do pay monthly payments to the vehicle suppliers," Mr Tueli said.

"It is government's prerogative that the best way forward is to lease vehicles rather than purchase them outright.

"We are just facilitators of the government and we see that this happens."

Mr Tueli said these vehicles were needed, to allow personnel to carry out their work effectively particularly in remote areas of the North.

"An officer will also be sent later to carry out assessments on these leased vehicles but we are only concerned with the awareness on leased vehicles.

"At the moment we are only sticking to the awareness bit and making sure that government vehicle drivers and heads of departments are familiar with the policies."
