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 2020



March 2020 – Follow-Up Report


Our annual follow up report will continue to report on how many recommendations organizations have implemented but will be expanded this year.  In addition to reporting results from our 2016 and 2017 performance audits, we will also include any recommendations not yet implemented from 2015.  We are also asking organizations to provide a status update on all of our 2018 recommendations, as well as a short summary explaining why any recommendations from 2015, 2016 and 2017 have not yet been implemented.  We will publish the responses from the organizations as provided but we will not be conducting any formal work on them.

Spring 2020



May/June 2020 – Performance Audit Report



Contaminated Sites: Following concerns identified in our financial statement work related to contaminated sites, we chose to undertake a performance audit in this area.  We will assess the current status of the recommendations we first made in 2010 and also look to see what the government is doing to identify and manage contaminated sites for which the provincial government is the responsible party.


Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation​: This broad ranging audit covers a number of areas within the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation.  We will consider how well they are meeting their role in promoting responsible drinking, assess the approach NSLC is taking to support the local beverage alcohol industry, look at their purchasing and promotion processes including inventory management, assess their capital planning processes, and finally look at how they manage agency store contracts.


QEII – Phase 2: This part of our audit looking at the QEII redevelopment project will cover the processes and analysis used to decide on the use of a P3 model to finance the project as well as the processes used to prepare the master plan outlining what the new facility will include.
