Inaugurating the Committee, Mr. Nathan Nyankey explained that the committee was expected to pursue the implementation of recommendations contained in the Internal Audit Reports, Parliament’s decisions of the Auditor-General’s report, Auditor-General’s management letter and the report of an internal monitoring unit in the university, particularly in relations to financial matters raised.

The Committee, he added, would be expected to provide advice on sound, transparent and reliable financial management practices, review corporate policies relating to compliance with laws and regulations, ethics, conflicts of interest and investigations of misconduct and fraud.

He advised them to collaborate with the Internal Audit Agency to initiate investigations into matters involving fraud or misuse of public funds by the university’s principal spending officer.

The Chairman of the STU Governing Council, Ing. Dr. Kwame Agyeman Boakye, reminded members of the committee of their critical role in ensuring prudent financial management practices in the institution.

Members of the committee are Mr. Solomon Kambey of the Internal Audit Agency as well as Apostle Samuel Tetteh Debrah and Mr. Michael Nsiah-Agyapong, both members of the STU Governing Council and Mr. Stephen Yeboah, Deputy Registrar in-charge of Academic Affairs and Admissions.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
