Please find attached a copy of the full audit report and summary report. The management letter and summary report will be published in the coming weeks. Should you wish, you may provide a written response, pertaining to this audit within 30 days. Your response will also be published.

The audit report includes recommendations to assist in improving management practices. We look forward to working together to develop a plan to address the management recommendations.
