De-mob audit

The World Bank has extended the deadline for an audit on a stalled Government

program to demobilize and reintegrate Cambodian soldiers into civilian

society.

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.
