Two senior staff have been fired from Auckland Transport after an investigation into allegations of conflict of interest and corruption.

This comes after the Serious Fraud Office launched an investigation in September over allegations of serious or complex fraud at the organisation. The investigation related to alleged irregularities in the procurement of services.

Auckland Transport, an Auckland Council controlled organisation, said today it had concluded its investigation and as result two senior staff had been dismissed.

A spokesman said invoice, contract and other documentation dating back to when Auckland Transport was formed in 2010 was reviewed.

Auckland Transport's findings have been handed to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) which is now undertaking further investigations.

"As the SFO investigation may involve employment or legal issues, Auckland Transport is unable say anymore at this stage," the spokesman said.
