—Auditor General Dan Duguay
The Office of the Auditor General released today a Special Report entitled The Review of Expenditures for Operations Tempura and Cealt.
Auditor General Dan Duguay explained that the objectives of the audit were to provide a full accounting of costs associated with the two special police investigations and assess whether the government was managing the initiatives with due regard for economy. In his report, he concluded that the Government did not have adequate oversight and management processes in place to manage contracts and report expenditures to the Cabinet as well as providing the means to ensure due regard for value-for-money.
"The Government has a responsibility to ensure it has appropriate business practices and controls to ensure transparency and accountability for the expenditures made for these kinds of initiatives," said Mr. Duguay.
