David Rogelio Colmenaresowner of Superior Audit of the Federation (ASF), presented the general executive report on the public account 2021where the results of the various processes of control of the government of the president were reflected Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO). It should be noted that this year’s delivery broke a record of recommendations, since they were 128 millionbeing that in the previous two they were 257 (2019) y 932 (2020).

The ASF is an entity of the Chamber of Deputies dedicated to auditing the federal government to find out where the Treasury is going. Upon completion of its work, it publishes an annual report in which it makes recommendations, asks for clarifications, promotes administrative responsibilities and other actions.

The third part of the audit relating to the governance of the Fourth transformation (4T) was sent to Pablo Angulopresident of the ASF Supervisory Committee This Monday, February 20. In this regard, the auditor of the federation pointed out that in the three years of the current government’s audit, 5,478 actions and recommendations have been promoted.

The Report is freely accessible and made available to the public on the official ASF website. Reading it, you can see that 2021 was the worst rated year so far in the current administration, as 3,044 stocks were promoted; being that in 2019 there were 486 and in 2020 there were 1,988; however, there has been a steady decline in the concept of “operated recoveries” compared to other six-year terms, which could represent an improvement in the dispersion of federal resources.

According to the ASF, the notion of recoveries made “refers to public resources that are reimbursed by audited entities following the issuance of shares and audit observations, with economic effects”. In this area there has been a significant reduction compared to the years when he governed Felipe Calderon (PAN) or Enrique Peña Nieto (PRI); however, this does not mean that 4T is exempt from this reinstatement.

There ASF reported that so far during the six-year tenure of AMLOin operated recoveries obtained 6 thousand 702.22 million pesos (1,746.60 in 2019, 2,738.33 in 2020 and 2,217.29 in 2021); while with Peña Nieto, 51 thousand 483.24 million pesos were counted (9 thousand 523.53 in 2013, 8 thousand 704.06 in 2014, 6 thousand 363.33 in 2015, 14 thousand 144.01 in 2016, 10 thousand 657.63 in 2017 and 2 thousand 090.68 in 2018).

During the delivery/receipt ceremony, it is emphasized that Colmenares Páramo did not appear in the Chamber of Deputiesbut rather virtual, where he highlighted the value of the ASF for Mexico and the operational capacity it has, since this is what legitimizes its work in relation to the accusations it makes against anything that could indicate hijacking of resources, unjustified direct rewards actions and any anomaly that could lead to a corruption investigation before the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR).

Once at this point, the auditor of the federation pointed out that in recent months he had promoted different complaints for 7 billion pesos; However, he pointed out that these do not correspond exclusively to the AMLO government, since they are complaints relating to exercises that date back to 2016.

“In particular, in the last 6 months, from September 2022 to date, 34 complaints involving more than 7 billion pesos have been filed, specifying that the majority of these complaints correspond to revisions of the public accounts from 2016 to this day”

However, the AMLO government has not gone unnoticed, since 12 of the complaints correspond to fiscal years 2019 and 2020, the first and second fiscal years of López Obrador audited, respectively, in relation to the program of Mexican food security (Segalmex).

“In any case, we have already filed 12 complaints related to the 2019 and 2020 public accounts in Segalmex operations during this period”

The said report is very broad and coarse, where all the irregularities indicated must be addressed by the responsible entities, this as an exercise of examination and rectification so that what can be clarified is clarified and, if not, the national authorities act accordingly. . initiate administrative sanctions and/or legal proceedings.
