Comptroller’s report highlights Jerusalem Municipality’s budgetary shortcomings

In the last fiscal year, Jerusalem, Israel’s largest city, scored a four out of 10 for fiscal management due to its poor socio-economic standing, and the municipality’s purported non-competitive bidding practices for high-paying tenders, the annual State Comptroller Office’s report stated.

The 43-page analysis of Jerusalem’s notoriously anemic economy provides an expansive overview delineating the underlying factors contributing to the city of roughly 830,000 inhabitants’ foundering economic status. 

According to the report, published on Wednesday, the main failure of the Jerusalem Municipality was its lack of “centralized information on municipal contracts” for suppliers of goods and services.
