OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2016) - The Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board, issued the following statement:

We welcome the Auditor General's reports. These reports highlight key areas for improvement, a number of which we had identified and are already being addressed.

In particular, the Government is

  • expanding and strengthening the use of gender-based analysis in decision making;
  • improving the delivery of cost-effective military housing programs across Canada;
  • improving the timeliness and access to services for people with disabilities; and
  • updating Shared Services Canada's IT Transformation Plan.

We are also committed to a renewed relationship with Indigenous peoples built on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation, and partnership.

The Government is committed to evidence-based decision making to ensure good value for taxpayers' money, and to instilling a strengthened culture of measurement, evaluation, and innovation in program and policy design and delivery.

The Auditor General's recommendations in the audits completed by Fall 2015 will help guide the Government in addressing these priority areas.
