The Inquiry

The Inquiry was led by former Under Treasurer John Langoulant AO, Special Inquirer at the request of the Premier Mark McGowan and Treasurer Ben Wyatt, and was conducted under section 24 of the Public Sector Management Act 1994

The Inquiry initially examined 26 programs and projects, entered into by the State Government between 2008 and 11 March 2017, focusing on the associated governance arrangements, decision-making processes and financial consequences. This number increased to 31 once some of the issues were examined more closely.

The Osprey Village was examined under a separate Special Inquiry led by Ms Stephanie Black. The Osprey Village Report should be read in conjunction with the Royalties for Regions chapter in the Volume 2 of Report.
