Proponent Chosen for Independent Financial Review

Kamloops, BC—April 22, 2021—the Thompson-Nicola Regional District is pleased to announce that a successful proponent has been selected to carry out the independent forensic audit and special financial review of the TNRD’s financial records and expenses. 

A Request for Proposals (RFP) was posted on BC Bid on Friday, March 19th and closed on Monday, April 12th at 4 pm. Six quality submissions were received from experienced firms, which were reviewed and rated by the evaluation team according to the criteria in the RFP. The highest scoring proposal has resulted in BDO Canada LLP, based out of Vancouver, being selected as the successful proponent. 

BDO has a highly qualified forensic accounting and investigations team with significant experience combined with strong knowledge of local government systems and practices. The TNRD is looking forward to working with BDO who will receive full cooperation from the TNRD to carry out their work. 

The TNRD hopes to have a contract for the services finalized within the next week, with the goal of having BDO start the work in early May. The TNRD remains committed to have the forensic audit and financial review completed as quickly as possible and the findings and recommendations made public.
