COVID-19 contracts and vaccinations, urban flooding and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation are among the various subjects of the provincial auditor general’s annual report today.
Bonnie Lysyk is set to deliver her annual report, which contains 15 different audits, including the cost-effectiveness and timeliness of COVID-19-related contracts and procurement, as well as whether Ontario’s vaccination program was cost-effective and equitable.
The audits will also cover topics such as highway planning and management, financial management in universities, and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.
Several audits will also focus on the environment, including urban flooding, conserving the Niagara Escarpment, management of invasive species, and management of hazards such as forest fires, droughts and gas wells.
