USP COUNCIL RECEIVES BDO INVESTIGATION REPORT

A Special Meeting of the USP Council in Nadi, Fiji today received a Report prepared by Auckland-based accounting firm BDO (Report) on the Independent Investigation commissioned by Council at its meeting in Port Vila, Vanuatu in May 2019.

The Investigation was undertaken following a paper prepared by the Vice-Chancellor & President Professor Pal Ahluwalia earlier this year, titled ‘Issues, Concerns and Breaches of Past Management and Financial Decisions’ (Paper).

The Report considered all the issues raised in the Paper and made a number of recommendations for strengthening the management and governance oversight at the University.
