CIT contract to be reviewed


CIT will conduct an independent review after its board revealed it cannot provide assurance that a nearly 5 million dollar contract is value for money.

The admission is the latest in the contract saga, with the ACT Government largely unsatisfied with the response from the board.

Further advice is being sought about what can be done in relation to the contract.

In a letter to Skills Minister Chris Steel the CIT Executive has tried to justify the contract, saying it would help staff with the capacity to assess and change courses as necessary during a time of “significant skills shortages”.

The audit will review the entire contract and examine whether it represents value for money.

It will also probe the prior performance of contracts awarded to Patrick Hollingworth, who’s company has received more than 8 and a half million dollars over five years.
