The RAP3 Public Audit (PA) is a monitoring process through which beneficiaries and stakeholders provide vital feedback on the design, delivery and expenditure of the programme. The overall purpose of the process is to use public participation as a means to continually improve the transparency, governance and approach of the programme. As guidelines, the LRUC level public audit should have to be conducted twice a year. The LRUC chairperson, with the support of RAP3 and its partners’ staff, is responsible conducting the Audit. All facilitators-representing 10-15 RBGs under one LRUC – present income and expenditure, works undertaken, support and guidance received from Construction Supervision Technicians, Social Mobilisers and problems and issues encountered during the period. Following the presentations, each participant is given the chance to raise questions. Queries related to the programme are responded to by RAP3 or its partners’ staff as appropriate. The Audit is attended by members of Road Building Groups, Special Building Groups, Members of Local Road Coordination Committees, political party representatives, VDC Secretaries, DDC and DTO representatives, local community people, representatives of community based organisations and other stakeholders.
