The City Commission selected Navigant Consulting to perform an external investigative review of GRU because of the firm’s expertise, including the following areas: power supply solicitation, acquisition and contract negotiation; investigative services and litigation support to large clients; knowledge and experience related to governance, processes and controls for municipalities and their public power entities; data collection, organization and presentation and e-discovery services.
In coordination with the City Auditor’s Office, Navigant Consulting has been working on the investigative review of GRU since the City Commission approved its contract for professional investigative review services in October 2014. To date, Navigant has held numerous meetings with city and GRU staff members, elected officials and citizens.
The firm has gathered and analyzed hundreds of gigabytes of data in the form of emails, memos and documents believed to be relevant to their investigative review. All information received, produced, or derived from Navigant’s investigation will be made publically available. Due to the volume of the documents, public availability will be completed as soon as possible.
A special city commission meeting was held Wednesday, April 15, 2015 where Navigant Consulting presented their report to the City Commission. It can be viewed below.
