QUÉBEC, May 31, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Ms. Guylaine Leclerc makes public the Spring 2017 Volume. In Chapter 6, she makes known the principal findings concerning the follow-up on the implementation of performance audit recommendations for 2016‑2017.
The percentage of the action plans received from the entities that comply with the Auditor General's requirements was 81% (30 out of 37), whereas the strategic plan target was 70%. Main areas for which improvements were sometimes needed concern the relevance and sufficiency of actions as well as their corresponding indicators. Some entities improved their action plan during the first year of its implementation to address our concerns, which is very positive.
A little over 80% of the recommendations of the Auditor General that were followed-up were implemented or showed satisfactory progress, whereas the strategic plan target was 65%. This rate is much higher for the annual states of progress associated with the new process (96%) than for the follow-ups conducted after three years, that is, the follow-ups arising from the old process. This leads us to believe that we made the right decision in changing the follow-up process to favour an annual follow-up.
With regard to the results related to the annual states of progress, 7 out of 103 recommendations were implemented, whereas progress was deemed satisfactory for 92 recommendations whose implementation was in progress. The entities must therefore stay the course over the next two years so they can complete the actions undertaken and maintain a high implementation rate.
The implementation rate of recommendations of the Committee on Public Administration that were followed-up by the Auditor General was 71%.
