OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Mar 7, 2016) - Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
Today, Treasury Board President Scott Brison tabled the annual Reports on Plans and Priorities on behalf of 84 government departments and agencies.
The 2016-17 Reports on Plans and Priorities contain detailed information that further explains the current funding requirements outlined in the 2016-17 Main Estimates.
The Government of Canada is committed to evidence-based decision making and consistent and regular measurement of results. To strengthen the oversight of spending, the Government will better align the Budget and Estimates processes, making the planning, spending and tracking of tax dollars more timely and transparent.
The President and his colleagues are working to develop simplified and more effective reporting processes. This will better allow Parliament and Canadians to monitor the Government's plans and progress on delivering real change for Canadians.
"The Government is committed to being transparent, open and accountable. The Prime Minister has mandated me to instill a strengthened culture of measurement, evaluation, and innovation in program and policy design and delivery. Improving the reporting process will shed more light on the Government's plan and progress on delivering real change to Canadians."
