According to the report of the Court of Accounts, electronic goods in closed hospitals were “scrapped”

In the 2019-2020 reports of the Court of Accounts regarding the Ministry of Health, irregularities regarding the scrapping of goods in public hospitals, which were closed and moved to Ankara Bilkent City Hospital, took place. Accordingly, durable goods such as computers and televisions, which were produced in 2016 and 2017, were “scrapped” in 2019. In the report, it was stated that computers that are 2-3 years old are said to be “worn and scrapped as a result of use”.

In the 2019 report of the Court of Accounts, it was stated that some devices in the closed hospitals were called “scrap” before the technical reports were prepared to show that they were usable, and the technical reports were prepared later in order to fill the “lack of documents”. It was noted that some devices were scrapped without any technical report. In the report, it was stated that “Scrap transactions should be followed up with a complete and accurate reporting system that will eliminate the risk of loss and theft”. In the report, it was emphasized that this problem experienced in scrapping was caused by “lack of planning” and commented, “Many of the problems are thought to be due to the fact that the procedures for the liquidation processes in the relocated hospitals were not determined, and the relocation works and procedures were not well planned.” It was also noted in the report that public resources should be used efficiently.
