Mining and civil earthworks company, BCM Global, is to undertake audit into the operations of the firm worldwide to uncover issues of gross mismanagement including possible diversion and embezzlement of funds.
The company, headquartered in Australia, which has been in West Africa – for more than two decades said when concluded, the audit would help improve on the service delivery of the country.
In a statement issued in Accra, the company said those found culpable would not be spared.
“Over the last several months, the Group has noted with grave concern the discovery of incidents of gross mismanagement, possible diversion and embezzlement of funds, by senior officers entrusted with financial responsibility within the organisation.
“We are in the process of conducting a full-scale audit and review of operations, with a view to establishing the culprits, improving our service delivery and streamlining our activities.
“Where appropriate the Group will institute criminal complaints against the culprits,” the statement said.
The operations of the company, the statement indicated, would not be affected in the course of the investigations.
“In the interim the Board and Management wish to assure its various partners, and the general public that, the current internal investigations which will shortly be concluded, do not in any way affect the running of its various operations.”
With experience of being in West Africa for over 25 years BCM assured that it would continue to be one of the leading mining and civil contractors in Sub-Saharan Africa.
It urged all those seeking clarification on any issues, particularly the media, to do so, by contacting its North Labone Estates office.
