Due to the non-execution of a cooperation agreement that ensured the prevention and care of child abuse, intrafamily violence and sexual abuse in the municipality of Aguazul (Casanare), the Management of the Comptroller General of the Republic in this department issued a ruling with fiscal responsibility for more than $905 million pesos (in total $905,448,129.67).
The control body did not find support for the execution of the cooperation agreement No. 402 of 2014 signed between the municipality of Aguazul and the Association for the Integral Development of the Family “ADIFCOL”, which had the objective of “carrying out prevention and care actions for violence and child abuse, domestic violence and sexual abuse, through campaigns, workshops and strategies in the municipality of Aguazul”.
The Departmental Management assumed this matter by transfer made to it by the Departmental Comptroller of Casanare, for reasons of competition, given that the affected resources come from royalties belonging to the Municipality of Aguazul, with respect to which the CGR exercises fiscal control.
Within the framework of the audit that gave rise to the fiscal discovery, folders were found that lacked supports that accredit the hiring of the professionals required to develop the object of the agreement, as well as no evidence was found that the activities had been carried out in the Educational Institutions of the municipality.
