PricewaterhouseCoopers has produced a report on the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, which has been the subject of criticism by some, including Mayor Anthony Foxx, over its handling of a review of the organization.
In April, the CRVA’s board hired PricewaterhouseCoopers for $25,000 after criticism arose over Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association bonuses paid to a CRVA staff member. The CRVA then contracted with Pricewaterhouse Coopers to conduct a review of itself.
The CRVA told city officials that it had no written report from PricewaterhouseCoppers. The CRVA only released a 2 1/2 page summary of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ findings. That led some, like Foxx, to blast the CRVA for spending “$12,500 a page.”
The contract between the CRVA and PricewaterhouseCoopers never called for the firm to produce a written report for the CRVA. Instead, according to the contract, Pricewaterhouse Coopers was being hired to provide “phone and meeting consultations with the CRVA board and its representatives.”
