After urging by a legislative committee looking into the matter, the province's Auditor General will be investigating the Pan Am security contracts.

The outline is to look at contracts involving the event's organizing committee, the OPP and the province itself.

Newstalk 1010 spoke with Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk, who says the report will likely be completed by the fall.

The $81 million contract with a private security firm sparked the committee to make this request.

Last week, the province said the OPP went through the bids for the job and chose who would get the job.

However, there has been criticisim the US-based firm won out, when there was a Canadian company  that placed a bid that was $14 million lower.

The Pan Am Games will be taking place in the GTHA next summer.
