The Selinger government has received formal requests from city hall to review external audits into the police headquarters project and major real estate transactions.
A provincial government spokeswoman said the province is "currently determining the appropriate approach," to deal with city council’s requests.
City council has asked the province to review the EY audit into 33 major real estate transactions and the KPMG audit of the construction of the police headquarters project – reports released two weeks apart earlier this month.
Both audits found city officials on several occasions failed to follow the city’s own policies and procedures and did not carry out their work according to recognized administrative standards.
The auditing team said the civic administration, in the name of expediency, had awarded contracts without tenders, and without determining if the city was receiving good value.
