This represents the second in a series of reports on the results of the audit of the COVID-19 Allocation of Resources for Employees (CARE) Programme.

This phase of the audit sought to determine if there was compliance with the eligibility, processing and disbursement guidelines pertaining to the SET Cash and Small Business Grants components as well as assess additional controls over the processing of Compassionate Grants
to determine the effectiveness of the bank validation controls, and the reliability of the batching, approval and disbursement processes. The Auditor General also undertook an assessment of the risks associated with the payment of the COVID-19 PATH Grant to determine whether reliance can be placed on the systems and processes used in administering the Grant under this component of the CARE Programme.
