In the early stages of the Inquiry it was felt that the riot was likely to be related to the redevelopment project at Banksia Hill Detention centre. As such the Auditor General decided to conduct a performance audit of the redevelopment project.
The performance audit focused on three main questions:
- Was the planning and management of the project consistent with prescribed state government and good practice procedures?
- Were risks associated with the redevelopment project identified and managed appropriately?
- Were significant goals and targets achieved?
The performance audit and the Inquiry were conducted fully independently and the reports are separately tabled and stand alone. The Auditor General’s report is linked here.
