Auditor-General launches probe into Home Affairs offshore contracts

Another $385 million contract with Brisbane company Canstruct International to provide garrison and welfare services on Nauru could also be captured by the new Auditor General’s probe. Canstruct faced no competition for this contract.

A construction company, Canstruct has sub-contracted Wilson Security to provide security services on Nauru since 2017.

But Canstruct’s contract expires this month and Australian and Nauru government officials have been negotiating a new arrangement which has a Nauru company take responsibility for security services.
