The Auditor General submits an annual report on the status of fraud and related matters. The Auditor General’s 2013 Annual Report on Fraud Including the Operations of the Fraud and Waste Hotline was adopted by Council at its meeting of April 1, 2014. This report represents an interim update on fraud-related activities for the period January 1, 2014 through to May 31, 2014.
In view of the fact that Audit Committee will likely not meet until early 2015, it was deemed appropriate to provide this update at this time. Further, Committee should be aware that the number of complaints has increased significantly in 2014 compared to last year.
