Correction: PWC still administrating FIA Land Base Investment Program

In our May 21st Rumour Mill we incorrectly reported that PriceWaterhouse Coopers would no longer be the third party administrator of the Forest Investment Account. PWC will continue to administer this $48-million annual (’08/’09) program.

PriceWaterhouse Coopers will no longer be the third party administrator for the Ministry of Forest’s Forest For Tomorrow Program or the Forest Investment Account Forest Science Program due to budget constraints associated with this fiscal year. The Mininstry of Forests stated that the change was not attributable to PWC’s performance of their duties. PWC will remain the third party administrator of the FIA $48-million (fiscal ’08/’09) Land Base Investment Program.
