Questions over Wellcamp quarantine facility

Shadow Finance Minister Jarrod Bleijie

Too many questions remain unanswered regarding the use of taxpayer funds at the Wellcamp quarantine facility.

I have written to the Auditor-General to investigate:

  • The complete cost of the project (including lease and operation costs)
  • If the procurement methodology has delivered the best value for taxpayers
  • If the Government’s use of commercial-in-confidence provisions to keep the project cost secret is in accordance with the use and disclosure of confidentiality provisions in government contracts policy
  • Whether the recommendations of the Queensland Audit Office’s Confidentiality and disclosure of government contracts (2017-18) report were implemented and applied in this instance

Transparency and accountability matters, especially when it comes to the use of public funds.
