Funding for the Wales Millennium Centre
Welsh Assembly Government managed risks well during construction but not after opening, says Auditor General
During the construction of the Wales Millennium Centre (WMC), the Welsh Assembly Government did a good job overall in managing the risks it faced as a key funder. But, according to the Auditor General for Wales, it was not on top of the continuing risks once the WMC had opened. His report, published today, says the Welsh Assembly Government was not fully alert to the risks until the WMC reached a financial crisis and requested additional public funds. In all, the project cost just over £109 million (see notes to editors) and has required more public money than originally expected.
