Government’s top accountant has confirmed that she has quit the post, almost nine months after being placed on administrative leave.

Accountant General Joyce Hayward was ordered to remain away from her office at the beginning of December 2012.

A Government spokesman refused to comment on personnel matters, however Ms Hayward confirmed to The Royal Gazette that she had resigned and was no longer employed as a civil servant. She declined to give further details.

In Ms Hayward’s absence, Assistant Accountant General David King was understood to be temporarily heading up the department, which has recently been criticised for a number of failings.

The Auditor General accused the department of failing to submit financial reports on time. And earlier this year it was revealed that it had collected just ten percent of the total debt referred to it by Government departments in 2010/11.
