Report on the Adelaide Oval redevelopment for the designated period 1 January 2016 to 30 June 2016

This Report provides an executive summary of the matters arising from the audit for the three reporting terms of reference provided for in the Adelaide Oval Redevelopment and Management Act 2011

This Report highlights that the majority of matters raised about the activities over a number of designated reporting periods remain unresolved, notwithstanding that the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure agreed with our recommendations and proposed actions to address the matters. In particular, the management of defects and the documents maintained to evidence the resolution of all defects identified, require attention. We also noted the need for more rigorous contract management arrangements for professional service providers.
