“However, I struggle to see a legitimate justification for NIGP’s reluctance to release the audit report. It leads one to suspect, rightly or wrongly, that the contents must be very bad news – perhaps for all those who have received copies.” – Colin Cram, August 16th PI Post Comment When I read the comment from […]
