The city of Toronto's Auditor-General is not happy.

Jeff Griffiths is alleging that most of the contracts he looked at regarding the redevelopment of the city-owned Sony Centre for the Performing Arts were sole source contracts; meaning no open and competitive bidding happened before the deal was approved.

The Toronto Star has its hands on a Griffiths report showing that the original $28-million job is now expected to come in on the high side of $40-million.  

The Auditor-General is accusing city staff of taking a hands-off approach to the Sony Centre redevelopment, which left it in hands of people with little experience in managing such a large-scale project.
