A new report has shown that the government of the Australian state of Queensland was not transparent and financially considerate during the construction of a $223 million (US$148 million) Covid-19 quarantine facility in 2021.
On June 30, the Queensland Audit Office released the findings of a year-long investigation into the Wellcamp quarantine facility by Auditor-General Brendan Worrall.
Although the report found that the procurement process of the quarantine camp was reasonable, it noted the Queensland government should have been more considerate in making the decision.
“While there was still significant uncertainty on the continuing impact of the pandemic at this time, alternates such as home and hotel quarantine were available,” it said.
Perhaps they could use it for bad boys instead of sending them back to NZ?
