Tempura audit due next month

The Auditor General will release a value-for-money review of an independent investigation into allegations of police corruption, known as Operation Tempura within the next month.

Speaking at a Public Accounts Committee meeting on Wednesday, Auditor General Dan Duguay said the report into the cost of the investigation into allegations of police corruption would be ready in the next two to four weeks.

‘We are currently deep into the clearance phase of the report. That clearance phase has officially taken us longer to do than the whole investigation,’ Mr. Duguay said.

In the clearance phase of an audit report, all the parties mentioned in the report are given the right to review the findings and respond to them. It is understood that the last person to review the report was Chief Secretary George McCarthy.

Once the report is completed, it will be laid before the Public Finance Committee and released to the public.

The report will examine how much the investigation cost and if the money was spent properly.
