What is the difference between a Special Report and a Special Investigation Report?

A special report is issued by the Board if it wishes to comment publicly on a matter that is related to the work of the Board or a specific audit or investigation case.

A special investigation is conducted by the Board to deal with matters of significant public interest that cannot be adequately addressed through a complaint investigation or an audit. Special investigations specifically examine compliance with the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act, as well as government enforcement.
