OTTAWA, Nov. 20, 2018 /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.
These reports, introduced for the first time last year, provide Canadians with a clear view of the results achieved by Government of Canada organizations and how they used their resources to achieve those results. They also measure progress towards objectives set in Departmental Plans.
The Departmental Results Reports also link to GC InfoBase, an online tool that brings together data on performance results and indicators that were previously scattered across close to 100 annual reports.
The Government of Canada continues to make more information available to Canadians, including parliamentarians, 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 and Minister of Digital Government
- Departmental Results Reports are part of the Estimates and Supply process.
- They provide details on an organization's mandate, commitments and results achieved.
- GC InfoBase provides easy access to results information from all 86 government departments.
