THE Ministry of Finance is yet to determine the amount of assets held by six government departments in the North.

The ministry's principal administration officer, Malakai Tueli, said they were conducting surveys on the forestry, health, education, agriculture, Ministry of Works and the police department in the North.

Mr Tueli said the survey was important for the maintenance of government resources.

"The purpose for conducting a board of survey in the North is to write off and at the same time determine appropriate methods of disposing government assets," he said.

"This includes the vehicles and plants within these government ministries and departments.

"The disposal of these items then allows ministries and departments to pursue proposals for purchase of replacement resources.

"Such resources are vital for providing government services to the people of the North."
