State Comptroller, Micha Lindenstrauss, states in his annual report that the true value of assets held by the State does not match the official reports, and that the government did not report to the public, and sometimes does not even know, the true value of its assets. The report further states revealed that the process of allocating and registering assets such as facilities and vehicles is flawed, and it is difficult to tell who uses those assets. The Comptroller said that his stuff had already commented 5 years ago on the inaccuracy of asset registration, and the fact that the deficiencies have not been corrected indicates “bad conduct of the Accountant General and government offices.”
