BDO Canada's audit of TNRD finances about 50 per cent complete; final draft report ready in August, TNRD CAO says

TNRD audit done by August

BDO Canada’s audit into the Thompson-Nicola Regional District's financial records is about 50 per cent complete, according to CAO Scott Hildebrand.

In a brief update provided to the TNRD Board of Directors at their meeting Thursday, Hildebrand said he is expecting a draft report from the forensic audit team in August.

A full, transparent public report will follow shortly after, according to Hildebrand.

“There will also be a public presentation by BDO in July, so that will be coming at the next board meeting,” Hildebrand said.

The next TNRD Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for July 15.

In April, BDO Canada was selected through an RFP process to provide an independent audit of the TNRD’s financial records and expenses.

The audit was requested by the TNRD after a Kamloops This Week investigation brought to light spending habits of former CAO Sukh Gill, who spent taxpayer money on costly dinners, drinks and other expenses while he was with the district.

The TNRD has also forwarded information to the police, who are looking into allegations of financial improprieties within the regional district.

Hildebrand told the board on Thursday that he couldn’t say much about the RCMP investigation, other than that “progress is being made and we are cooperating as requested.”
