Response

As stated in Results for Canadians, the Modern Comptrollership initiative is part of the Government’s medium term agenda for managing change. Implementation of the Financial Information Strategy will contribute to this initiative by allowing costs to be closely linked to activities, operations and results. Senior deputy heads have been engaged in the effort through presentations and correspondence from the Secretary of the Treasury Board and additional financial assistance has been provided to a number of departments to achieve full implementation.

The success of the first implementation projects to connect to the central systems and introduce basic accrual accounting in 1999 and 2000 has instilled a positive expectation on the part of all participants that the goal is doable in the timeframe specified.

The Treasury Board Secretariat will:



  1. Report to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts by October 31st, 2000, on the means and methods being used to assist and encourage all federal departments and agencies to implement the Financial Information Strategy by April 1, 2001.

  2. Report on the status of the overall implementation of the Financial Information Strategy in its Performance Reports for the years ending March 31, 2000 and March 31, 2001

  3. Include in its report to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts on the means and methods being used to assist and encourage all federal departments and agencies to implement the Financial Information Strategy information on the accountability documents, plans and timetables of departments and agencies.
