THE provincial government has received formal requests from Winnipeg 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 the 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 new police headquarters, which were released this month.
Both audits found city officials failed to follow city 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, awarded contracts without tenders, and without determining if the city was receiving good value.
