This represents the third and final 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 BEST Cash and General Grant (specifically the occupational groups under the Tourism Product Development Company, Entertainment Practitioners and Bar Operators) components of the CARE programme. I also conducted a follow up review of the COVID-19 PATH Grant with specific emphasis on the application controls over the Beneficiary Management Information System (BMIS) and the general controls over the beneficiary registration, verification and payment processes to determine whether reliance can be placed on the systems and processes used in administering the COVID-19 PATH Grant.
