With the investigation into Delhi and Districts Cricket Association's (DDCA) past accounts continuing to remain a work in progress, Justice Vikramjit Sen on Wednesday sought fresh proposals from auditing firms to undertake the court-ordered Special and Forensic Audit.

Justice Sen, appointed by the Delhi High Court as DDCA administrator pending external, independent audition of the past three years' accounts and conduct of fresh elections of office-bearers to the association, said in his mail that none of the proposals of interest received so far had been satisfactory enough to get the mandate. As such, fresh proposals were being invited from auditing firms to do the same.

“We were unable to accept any of the proposals submitted as the concerned audit firms did not have any requisite experience for the special audit mandated by the HC. We are once again calling for fresh proposals. The last date of submission is May 15 (7 pm),” the letter states.

The letter also lists out requirements from interested firms for the court-mandated SFA beyond the regular audit with the focus being mainly on:

** Audit of procurement, capital works and other high and medium risk areas etc.

** Weaknesses in systems, procedures and internal control in DDCA.

** Examine if there were any malafide decisions, wilful negligence, conflict of interest, losses suffered, post contract damages, misuse of authority, overstepping of authority, violation of prescribed rules, procedures, laws, acts etc.

** Likely frauds, embezzlements, irregularities, mismanagement of affairs, decisions or transaction, prejudicial to the interest of DDCA, quantification of financial loss and gathering evidence in this regard.
