A review of New Brunswick’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is proceeding as quickly as possible, and several other audits have been postponed until it’s completed, says the Auditor General’s Office.

The review, unanimously requested by the legislature in April, is currently in the “scoping phase,” said spokesperson Jolyne Roy. She did not respond to a request to elaborate.

“The office is working as fast as possible while ensuring quality audit work,” Roy said in an emailed statement.
