The Independent Investigator hired by the University of the South Pacific Audit and Risk Committee will start its investigation this week into allegations of breach of procedures by current and former USP staff.
The investigation report is due by 16th August this year.
The allegations are laid out in a leaked confidential report which was presented to the Executive Committee of the USP Council in March this year.
The report which was compiled by USP Vice Chancellor Professor Pal Ahluwalia details allegations of quick appointments and contract renewals for some senior members of the university many of them work at the Laucala campus in Fiji.
There are also details of an alleged breach of policy in past financial decisions as well as questionable promotions and questionable allowances for some staff.
