The Auditor General’s 2013 Work Plan included a review of construction contracts managed by Toronto Water. Toronto Water oversees work performed by contractors engaged to install, repair and rehabilitate the City’s water and wastewater systems. The objective of this review was to assess the extent to which management and administrative controls ensure the City’s interest is protected, payments are accurate and contract terms are enforced.
This report contains 12 recommendations along with a management response to each of the recommendations. The implementation of these recommendations will strengthen controls, and improve the overall effectiveness of contract management and payment processes.
