The Development and Finance Surveillance Agency (BPKP) will finish its audit over the renovation of residential houses for members of the House of Representatives next week, the agency head said Wednesday.

BPKP chief Mardiasmo said in Makassar that the audit was still ongoing and was expected to be completed by next Monday.

“We will submit the audit result to House’s Household Affairs Committee next week,” he said.

The House committee previously said that they had indication of embezzlement in the renovation of 495 residential houses in Kalibata, South Jakarta, worth Rp 445 billion (US$49.84 million).

The renovation was scheduled to be completed within two months and ended in September, but the contractor failed to meet the deadline.
