NTU to have New Scholarship Management Programme
Dr Sikua says the findings of the audit report on the National Training Unit's selection of scholarship are very serious.
He says the Ministry would ensure accurate student records and financial procedures is a newly developed student and course information system known as SCHOLAR.
Dr Sikua says this computer-based system has inbuilt audit functions and all student awards which will be managed through this system in the near future.
The audit report reveals that a number of students taking up scholarships did so through dubious and questionable actions from the National Training Unit.
The report says that in some instances scholarships were awarded at the discretion of the minister, permanent secretary or under Secretary which is out of the normal process.
