The Chairperson of the Northern Ireland Assembly Public Accounts Committee, Paul Maskey MLA, today detailed the outcome of three extraordinary Committee meetings held to address the issues arising from its inquiry into procurement governance at NI Water.

He said: “The Committee has asked the Comptroller and Auditor General to go into the company to examine the procurement concerns raised in recent internal audit reports and he has agreed.

“The Committee further agreed the way it intends to proceed with the inquiry while also addressing its forward work plan for the autumn.”
