RCMP Pension Fund Scandal - OUCH!!
The accounting firm, KPMG, found that a company known as Casey Computer Solutions, had been designated to get several contracts even before the requests had gone out for bids. Kim Casey disclosed she gave Ottawa Senators hockey tickets to the director of the RCMP branch that managed the pension fund's insurance plan on at least five or six occasions as she won contracts with the office for several years. Ms. Casey insisted "to the best of my knowledge, there were no irregularities" and proper procurement rules had been followed.
Ms.Casey's husband, Pat Casey, worked within the very RCMP branch from which his wife's company obtained the contracts -- totalling $3.27 million in one year alone.
