NL Auditor General announces review of Memorial’s use of government funding

April 5, 2022
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Office of the Auditor General has announced that it will be completing a review of Memorial University. The Auditor General will be completing an overview of the university’s use of its government funds to determine if they are being used effectively. “Both the Provincial Government and the people of this province place significant value on the contributions of Memorial University to the social and economic fabric of the province, and taxpayers provide a significant contribution to Memorial’s operations,” said NL Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance Siobhan Coady. “As the stewards of an ongoing, sustained investment of this size, it is imperative on us, as we look to expand Memorial’s level of autonomy, to ensure that this investment is being used to maximize the benefit for post-secondary students and their educational outcomes.” NL (NL)
