Planned Audits and Reports

Please Note – the following topics could change as could the timing of reporting. This is our best estimate at the current time for what will be reported.

Winter 2019



Follow-Up of 2015 and 2016 Recommendations


Our annual review of the status of the recommendations we made in 2015 and 2016 will continue as a stand alone report late in the winter of 2019. We will examine approximately 140 recommendations and report on how many government have completed necessary actions on.




Joint Follow-Up of Recommendations to the Atlantic Lottery Corporation


Auditors General from New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island will collaborate on a joint follow-up report on the status of recommendations to the Atlantic Lottery Corporation. The follow-up report will examine 25 recommendations made to Atlantic Lottery Corporation's management, Board, and shareholder governments, and report on how many they have completed the necessary actions on.


Spring 2019





This audit will examine how the Public Service Commission is addressing diversity and inclusion within the workforce of the provincial government. Additional work has been added to consider the status at a selection of departments across government.






This audit will look at how the provinces manages bridge maintenance and new construction. We will look at how they assess the condition of bridges and how they determine which ones require maintenance or replacement. We will also consider how government ensures standards are complied with when building or repairing bridges in Nova Scotia.




Workers Compensation Board


This will be the second phase of reporting on our audit of processes at WCB. This chapter will address claims and benefits administration, appeals, return to work processes and service provider contracts


Fall 2019



QEII Redevelopment


This audit will look at the redevelopment project and assess progress to date.  The focus will be on what has happened around the decision to use a P3 model and the work done to develop the needs assessment.  This work will obviously have to be to a point in time as the redevelopment will still be in progress when we report.




Red Tape Reduction


This audit will look at the work done by the Office of Regulatory Affairs and Service Effectiveness to reduce regulatory and administrative burden for businesses in Nova Scotia.  We will consider how the Office measures its effectiveness and how well the business navigator process is working.
