OTTAWA, Nov. 9, 2017 /CNW/ - Open and transparent government results in policies, programs and services that better reflect the values and expectations of Canadians.
Today, Treasury Board President Scott Brison tabled the annual Departmental Results Reports on behalf of 83 government departments and agencies.
The 2016-17 Departmental Results Reports are more streamlined and provide Canadians with a clearer view of the results departments achieved and how resources were used to achieve those results.
For the first time, the Departmental Results Reports link to InfoBase, an online government tool that brings together performance results and indicators data that were previously scattered across close to 100 annual reports.
More information is now available to Canadians, and parliamentarians among them, to monitor the planning, spending and tracking of tax dollars.
"I firmly believe that open government leads to better government. We're presenting information to parliamentarians and Canadians that lets them explore the planning, spending and results achieved at the government-wide and departmental levels."
- The Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board
- Departmental Results Reports replace the former Departmental Performance Reports, which are part of the Estimates and Supply process.
- They provide details on an organization's mandate, commitments and results achieved.
- The Government of Canada will also soon launch public reporting on mandate letter commitments. The new website, Canada.ca/results, will provide government-wide reporting and will complement the Departmental Results Reports being tabled today.
