The chosen contractor included the multiplication factor box within the economic proposal. He multiplier factor refers to the payment of severance pay, annual bonuses, social security, ICBF, Family Compensation Fund, pension, medicine, among other benefits, that had to be paid to the workers that the contractor would look for to carry out the audit.

However, the auditor ‘cheated’ and hired his workers to provide services so as not to pay social benefits, although he had received a budget from Caesar’s waters. Therefore, the multiplier factor had to be equal to 0 and not 1.99, as established by the contractor. That ‘little trick’ allowed the contractor to keep 26.7 million pesos, according to a report from the General Comptroller.

The Attorney General’s Office considered “that the server under investigation (Jaime José Garces) allegedly did not adopt the monitoring and control actions aimed at verifying compliance with the obligations contracted by the contractor, since if it had done so, it would have perceived that the contractor failed to comply with what was offered in its economic proposal by formalizing its personnel under a contract for the provision of services. services and not by employment contract.”
