Questions without notice
Education Directorate—Campbell Primary School procurement
MS LEE: My question is to the Minister for Education and Youth Affairs. Minister, you said you found out about the Campbell Primary School procurement issues when the Auditor-General’s report was released in December last year. However, FOI documents show that you were briefed in May last year about potential issues with the procurement. Minister, when did you actually find out that there were issues with the procurement?
MS BERRY: I thank the Leader of the Opposition for her question. Yes, I was advised that there was an audit being conducted in Campbell. It was posted publicly online, as everyone will know. I was advised on the processes within the audit but not the details of the audit. When the audit report was released, in December, that was when I was informed on the detail in the audit report.
MS LEE: Minister, were you briefed on the Campbell Primary School procurement by your directorate before the Auditor-General’s report was released?
MS BERRY: I am not quite sure what you mean.
MS LEE: I do not know how much clearer I can be. Were you briefed about the Campbell Primary School procurement by your directorate before the Auditor-General’s report was released in December?
