The World Bank has extended the deadline for an audit on a stalled Government
program to demobilize and reintegrate Cambodian soldiers into civilian
The program has been "largely inactive" since 2003 after the
World Bank found a $6.9 million contract had been awarded to a supplier who
failed to meet bid requirements.
The Government will be given until
mid-May to submit the audit, which cannot begin until mid-March due to the
existing workload of the company appointed to conduct it, the Bank said.
