    per a year

    What is interesting is that 132 million SSP that Central Equatoria State gets per a year is in addition to the amount of money it gets from the national government together with other states. Not only that, this is in addition to services that it gets because of the presence of the capital city in the State.

    Here we donít have indefinite article a after preposition per
    per prep - definition in American English Dictionary - Cambridge Dictionary Online

    Then we have per year - definition of per year by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    As a result, should I delete a that being used in the underlined part?
