Council's statement of the completion of the whistleblower investigation

Council is satisfied that Kroll has completed an objective and thorough investigation into the whistleblower complaints and received good cooperation from all parties involved.
The investigation found no evidence of wrongdoing or improper conduct on the part of Regional employees or suppliers. However, Kroll did identify evidence corroborating certain elements of the Whistleblower complaints relating to lapses in process, which in some instances were already known to the Region, and corrective action has been taken/is underway.
Kroll and CIMA+ have made some constructive recommendations for operational improvements that the Region has committed to consider and implement where possible.
Council appreciates the good faith on the part of the whistleblowers in bringing forward their concerns and their patience during the fulsome investigation process.
Council wishes to thank Kroll, CIMA+ and all parties involved for their diligence in bringing this matter to a positive conclusion.
