The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, Agriculture and Lands (MEYSAL) was yesterday recognised by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) for being the most improved government body.

The ministry was recognised for having updated its financials for the periods 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 over seven months and for also achieving an unqualified audit.

The newly instituted award was presented during a ceremony in the meeting chamber of the Legislative Assembly and was collected by Acting Chief Officer Lyneth Monteith and Chief Financial Officer Nicola Wildman.

“This is a moment of excellence and is a testament to the hard work and diligence in the Ministry’s Finance Unit. Our Finance team has worked long hours, and this is a tangible recognition of that hard work,” said Monteith. 
 
Wildman expressed her gratitude for the hard work of past and present staff members that made the occasion possible.  
 
The ministry also received awards in recognition of achieving unqualified audits for the years 2018 and 2019. 
 
Similar awards were presented to ministry's statutory bodies: Water Authority Cayman and the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI), among others.
