SSC statement on the GSN inquiry
Statement form Iain Rennie, State Services Commissioner:
"Last week I said that I had begun an internal review of both contractual and performance issues around the management of Voco contracts for the GSN.
"I have since received further information that has confirmed to me the critical importance of conducting this process in a transparent and fair manner, particularly around how contracts were managed and how perceived and potential conflicts of interest were handled.
"Accordingly, I will be engaging an independent inquirer to conduct the review of the SSC’s performance in these matters.
"Once I have retained independent advice I will release the terms of reference for the review. As I said last week, this will be a transparent process and I will publish my findings and copies of any independent reports as soon as I am in a position to do so."
