Victorian government departments wasted money and failed to set up strong fraud controls when they spent billions of dollars tackling COVID-19, the state’s auditor-general has found.

It included spending $172 million on PPE that was not fit for purpose that included 33 million N95 respirators and 14 million surgical face masks.
